    So this is for my fellow M8 owners. Are you going Windows 10 day one next month or waiting to see if any issues arise?

    I'm inclined to wait a couple of days, so please my beta testers report back! Oh and be sure to mention if you have the Verizon version, it appeared to me as the only one originally with the random reboot issue.

    A Verizon stock ROM has been linked on xda, so those with Verizon m8 can do anything they want and flash back to 8.1 if there are issues. I'm still looking for an ATT ROM though...

    If the M8 is your primary driver then I would not recommend this, because the general feeling among us is that the upcoming releases will be actual beta's that can actually limit your phone's functionality. I would recommend getting another low-end device and testing out the releases on that before actually updating your primary device.. Otherwise waiting a minimum of two weeks and going through all the issues noted here on our forums would be a wise move

    I went to 8.1 developers preview on my 8x and never had an issue, but, I think I will keep my M8 alone for a bit and wait for others to be the testers. I am not seeing too many improvements in 10 for the phone that would cause me to change early.

    Those were not true beta's :) Just look at W10 build previews; ask those users and they will tell you that being part of the prev has some negative sides, but the positives will ultimately win lol Keep in mind that on a PC you could dual boot or run VM; we don't have that option for our phones

    I'll probably go for it right away. Not much to lose, and it could be interesting. Everything on my phone is backed up constantly, so who cares?

    I'm going to wait and let things sort out, but I'm 100% sure I will upgrade later this year.

    I'm also going to download the upcoming preview version of Windows 10 for my PC and set it up to dual boot, that way I can really check out the integration between PC and phone.

    Not me no way. Leaving my M8 AS IS. I'll just bide my time and wait for official device/product releases.

    Someone stated that the Dev Prev app and the Phone Insider app will coexist; the Ph.I will give you beta access whilst the dev prev will give you the somehwat finished product. If that is the case then it would be great :D

    I'm gonna test it on my 920. My biggest concern is not being able to flash back like you can with a nokia, if a problem arises we are stuck. Being AT&T they could do it at the service center but it would be a pain in the arse.

    I'll put it on my 635 just to see what it's all about, but honestly I really like the M8 on 8.1 and want for nothing on it.

    I don't know, settings are a mess! Getting 10 just to fix that would be nice.

    This, x100. There are enough inexpensive, low-end devices out there that if you really want to test the early releases, that would be the way to go.

    You don't have to activate it, a 635 go phone for $50 would be a good example. You can use all the data functions over Wi-Fi and test Windows 10 risk free. I never sell my old phones when I upgrade, it's how most people have a spare.

    I have a spare 920 to test it out on, but if I see good things coming from other, more brave people, I'll update my M8 to the dev preview. So, it'll be as instant as I can for the Nokia, but maybe a week or so, depending, for the M8.

    I will not be installing it on day one on my m8. I will install on my old 928 and see how stable it is.

    From what I understand, the Dev Preview Program is going away and being merged into the Insiders program. This is to eliminate the need to send developers to two different spots to work their universal apps. It's a much easier way to distribute everything to devs and doesn't require multiple resources to have it happen.

    PS - the leak on XDA is not an official VZW ROM, it appears to be a test build. Also, unless it is a fully signed MS/HTC RUU, you can't flash it. The one that was posted earlier on was a spam-ware link from China or something. It was not good.

    That said, I'll be updating to Win 10 as soon as possible. I think the Insider release will be slower to come to non-Microsoft devices, but I'm hoping sooner than later it will be here.

    Would the test build not then update to the latest release?

    No, I believe that they would not get the next update. Having done some testing in the past, these are usually locked ROM's that will not accept OTA updates. That said, I don't know how the Insider program will work yet for mobiles, so it's hard to say what will and won't work going forward.
