    1. Yes I am testing it.. I've had it on bare metal and a VM
    2 YMMV = Your millage may vary.

    And finally,, lay off. Being snarky is not impressing me one bit.
    You made a statement that I and some others disagreed with. This happens in a forum such as this and most forums. All I did was to state a fact as I know it that build 10056 is the best build that I have used. I am not trying to impress you or anyone else and I certainly was not snarky. It is my opinion and only my opinion that Build 10056 is good as they get so far. I have not had any crashes as I did in 10049 and when I installed it, this build actually installed all of my drivers, even my MS Wireless Mouse driver. I am quite sure that when Windows 10 goes final it will be better than 10056. You are right I like taking chances for 5 years I used nothing but Nightly Firefox Builds as my only browser. Each user has their own choices and I chose to use this Build. I do have Windows 7 on a different hard drive and an image of it. I read today that you can updated from Windows 7 to Windows 10 TP and then to the final. That my friend is way too risky for me. Since IU have been on this forum I have learned a great deal from you, Wynona, Kari and many more. Brink is in a special expert in all aspects of Windows. His TUTS are amazing. It was never my intent to be snarky it is just the way I come across it seems sometimes. If I offended you in any way I am sorry.

    Well I have a dual boot (Win 7 and Build 10056). I have not had a single issue with this build as of yet and have set it up and installed most of the software I use on Win 7. So far I have used this build as my daily OS. That being said I won't be pulling out my Win 7 SSD anytime soon just in case. I will wait until Win 10 is officially released.

    You're not alone. I kept a partition with 10049 to ensure the capability to upgrade to the next official build, but I also have 10056 in another partition. Both have bugs, of course, but my impression is that 10056 runs smother...

    I may do that as well but I think that 10056 will update. If not I can just do a clean install. I have nothing on it but a couple games and browsers. All OS's have bugs, Windows 7 still has bugs.

    ... I have no idea what YMMV means ...
    If you are using Firefox (or one of its forks) you can install a search engine called "Acronym Finder".

    When combined with the "Context Search" add-on, you can highlight an acronym and search for its meaning using the Context menu.

    I agree.. Leaks can have more bugs than the official TP's. And if anyone does test them I would recommend that the use of a VM is a must.
    Edwin: I disagree, bugs, more often than not, are amplified by running it in a VM.
    Hey guys, I have everything now dual booting, with Windows 10 in its own partition, so I don't have to worry about VMs. It can't get out!

    I'd have to agree, 10056 has the most features working properly since 9941, or whatever it was.
    Hopefully that means that the next Build Microsoft drops will be far better! I'm not having any real problems except when I try to emphasize something, and then my post goes haywire. But that's in 10049, and it went away for awhile in 10056. Now I don't know if it will get better or not. We'll see.

    I too would beware of leaked updates if I had to dual boot on same HDD but I have an old HDD just for that purpose and as I signed up for testing W10, testing is what I'm doing and that includes everything about W10 I can get my mitts on. I just take care when installing those (and official) updates by disconnecting other drives. If it doesn't work out I always keep .ISO from previous version, half an hour and I'm back where I stared from. Windows 8.1 and payed programs on it are just too precious to risk. One of my primary testing goals with W10 is testing hardware too so I gave up on VM for time being.
    Play but play safe is my motto. Regular full W8.1 system backup with Reflect, helps a lot.

    Right!
    I also have a HDD exclusively for Windows 10 testing. Windows 8.1 is installed on a SSD.

    I have separate disks for Windows 7 and Windows 10 builds. Both are WDblack1TB Spinners. I also have an old Seagate Barracuda and a Hitactchi drive laying around. Oh and everyone using any TP build is taking chances. That is why all of my important stuff is on Win 7.
