    It's interesting that there hasn't been lots of dialog about this build. Does this mean it's dull or everyone is satisfied with it?
    IMHO, we Insiders love testing new features and new UI changes....something that is visible to the end user. At this point in the Redstone2 development cycle, all of the changes are being done internally "in the code" so to speak, so although we can go through and do the necessary bug testing that results from changing code, we do it, but because there isn't anything exciting happening yet, everyone here has been sort of subdued.

    That is my take IMHO, feel free to disagree or agree, I wouldn't care.

    First time ever, since October 1st 2014 and first Windows 10 Technical Preview I had to restore earlier build and can't use the latest.

    Of all builds I have only skipped two which I did not even download and install because release notes already told I couldn't use them due lacking language packs (a must for me). However, this is the first time I installed a new build but then after only a day had to restore to previous build, this time my issue was not mentioned in release notes.

    The reason: My WiFi simply died after upgrading to 14915. No legacy or new drivers from manufacturer's site worked, all possible driver's giving this:

    WLAN NIC is from Ralink.

    I need Miracast wireless display, which of course does not work if WLAN NIC does not work. A deal breaker for me.

    I am not surprised by this - IMO MS have become very sloppy now with Insider Releases and Quality Control. Sure we expect bugs but to GLARINGLY keep breaking things that worked in previous release is bordering on incompetent.

    We should all as Insiders feed this back. I would prefer we go back to slightly earlier approach where Insider versions were a bit less frequent but better tested before release.

    I want to try new features and feed back views - I do not want to become an unpaid MS debugger as it is beginning to feel like now.

    Dona is much more willing to push the envelope on releasing new builds than Gabe was. I'd much prefer a move toward slightly less frequent releases in return for a bit more stability.

    Although I now had to go back to previous build, I must say I disagree a bit. My issue is a typical example why we have Fast and Slow rings; if you are not willing to risk using Fast Ring finding it too unstable, you can opt in to Slow Ring.

    My colors are seriously messed up and can't change them any more, gonna have to borrow a theme from someone else. I deleted all of my old ones a month ago.

    Really hope the next update comes out soon, or I need to do a clean install and start again.
    915 wont install and because I cant get in the settings I cant stop it downloading everytime the PC checks for update.
    Don't really want to Start again, but its looking like I may have too.

    Think back a bit and when Gabe said that the builds would come much faster there would be more bugs in them. So.,. we were well warned about this and now it's happening.

    1 Faster builds
    2 More Bugs..

    3 Remedy,, get out of the fast lane if you don't like the idea of having all of these bugs??

    I may not like it but I can take it as long as it's usable and runs everything I throw at it.
