    I wonder how many are actually testing Win10?? 1.7 million is a lot and cool but I hope good feedback is provide and not trivial.

    I agree!

    This is a refreshing change from the Windows 8 preview days. Much more interactive, social media is alive with comments and feedback real time.

    That is a lot of Installations. I hope this shows M$ a better way of testing OS other than the GEEK squad they did before.

    Hi there

    Not wishing to be disrespectful to some of my PRO I.T colleagues who do generally a very hard job in keeping stuff up and running I do often think they aren't the best people to test stuff as they - especially those working professionally are generally working with less than state of the art hardware and software (often very much less than state of the art kit) and their brief is usually to keep systems up and running and above all stable.

    Home users can re-install an OS 200 times if they want to and can change hardware more times than most people have had hot dinners.

    This is the sort of scenario you want in testing - ordinary people probably breaking systems in ways that a Pro I.T person wouldn't even think of -- different mindset - in one case just let's "suck it and see" while in the other - try to avoid breaking it.

    Ms did IMO 100% the correct thing in opening up the test previews to the largest possible audience - and they will reap the rewards of that -I for one think W10 will be Ms's most stable and resilient OS ever.

    Cheers

    I beg to differ, no disrespect intended, but as a IT pro it was my job to test and break code all of the time. If I or my colleagues didn't we would never really know if our changes or new code works properly.

    Just my 2c..

  9. I see what Jimbo is saying and it is true in some cases, it's all down to the individual IT Pro but then agree with Jeff as any IT Pro should know how to deliver to the less technical end user.

    Being an IT Pro i receive many calls from end users with issues (many of which are really simple for me to fix but obviously they feel i have wizardry skills) but it's these calls and working with end users on a one-to-one basis that enables be to think like the end user.

    Many times i am able to break things that are there to be broken so by the time the end user gets hands on it is very stable.

    "Open Source" 'style' testing is my preferred method, releasing the product / software with a very clear notice about how it is a Preview, Beta, RC etc... and let people break it / provide feedback on both the Good and Bad.

    Cheers,
    Jamie
