    Yes but that wouldn't be testing !!
    What I would like to hear as WHY some features stopped working, the likes of non working Update history in 14905 and non working color choosing in 14915. Those two for instance were not in a change log like some other possible problems were. Snafus with drivers and their APIs are more or less self explanatory.
    I'm not stranger to danger but like to get into it with at least one eye open.
    In other words, better two way communication would be welcome and even more beneficial to all parties concerned. That's the way I did it when working on a project that involved whole corporation.
    As much as I hate to admit it I do agree with Kari. IMHO a large number of Insiders asked for faster build releases and MS gave us what we wanted. We were warned that we may encounter more bugs because of this. It is our decision to choose if we want to be on the Fast Ring or Slow Ring or to drop out. I'm choosing to stay in the Fast Ring. I keep backups in case. If I find a new build is to buggy I'll go back to the previous build and switch to the Slow Ring until it's fixed.

    I know all that and agree with it but still wish for some more communication from MS that's all, if it was bothering me too much I would have bailed out.

    Fair enough as are Kari's and Microsoft's clearly stated warnings ...........if one isn't prepared for the usual beta drama, hiccups ,a clean install, re install or roll back a biuld or a few any time without warning and they should ideally have saved a few ESD's in rotation for all that for per Kari's excellent ESD to media tutorials and are not backing up at least files and data ( but dont take these precautions like anyone familiar with beta testing might ) then perhaps one shouldn't be on the fast or slow ring anyway and use the stable AU win OS and leave the adult toys to the adults .

    OFC this is just an unqualified opinion and folks like to vent anyway ...........

    Having said all that, ......

    So, Dona, ......

    "On with the tour"?
    maybe Dona and the Redmond elves and indentured slaves are still partying from the AU celebrations and back patting themselves for trainwreck's 14905 ,(not as bad ) 14915 :

    I fully accept there are risks. My gripe is that GLARING bugs get through eg the power button failing on 14905. Now we have issues with personalisation menu etc. These were working fine before but they got broken. My gripe is MS know about this but still issue the release.

    This is not justifiable in my opinion. Telling people like me to get out of the Fast Lane is not the answer. Even as Insiders we should expect a reasonable level of quality and service. I believe MS are failing to meet that now.

    IMO, we should feedback to MS that they need to raise their game - I am certainly going to do so.
    I agree with that totally.
    Yes, Insiders on the Fast Ring should expect a number of bugs in each new build but what is the point of MS releasing the builds which contain known bugs? Surely the whole point of Insiders is to report new bugs to MS, ones that they didn't know about.
    The problems with known bugs is that they can be so bad that they can divert an Insider from looking for new ones which surely defeats the whole ethos of having a Fast Ring.

    I know Kari will probably totally disagree with this but I stick by what I've posted :)

    True! If Fast Ring Insider Builds were perfect, why would MS need to roll them out to us???
