    Appears I am late to this party . None the less, installed it on a spare machine... Working out well for me so far!

    Running mine in a VM
    As this is the desktop preview I am finding that side of it very nice so far, the start menu does make the desktop a lot nicer with the windowed store apps
    However I am a touch user as well as keyboard/mouse so am waiting for the preview that includes these changes as the experience with touch is not very nice in the current preview

    Dual Booting it on my laptop and have already installed all my development tools. Have been playing around to see what we will be able to customize and what not and quite happy that a lot of old code I wrote from XP-W7 is working great.

    Copied my standard W8.1 to a new partition and installed the ISO in there so I have dual boot. Had to reinstall programs and apps, user data was kept. Use it as my standard boot, works fine for a preview, so far reported 2 apps that don't work.

    Forget a VM, I want to see the full performance of Windows 10 so far..... Tripple booting with Windows 7 (primary OS I use), WIndows 8.1 and now Windows 10...

    The Windows 10 bootloader is nice, no problems shows all 3 OS's when I start my PC, select and go.

    Over all, it's nice, really have not installed anything accept office 2013 and added it to my domain (access files and my group policy testing). Still using WIndows 7 primary due to programs I need but, from what I see, no question, when released I think I will be retiring WIndows 7....

    Truly the BEST of Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 in Windows 10....Exactly what Windows 8 should of been to start...

    Hope they bring back Windows Media Center...and even better update it, then more computers in my home will be upgraded.

    This is ROCKIN on my Dell Venue 8 Pro Tablet.

    + I LOVE it. New format and start menu are great. If you like the Modern better, you can simply choose Start Screen instead of Start Menu.

    - Have had only 1 freeze - rebooted with power button no problem.
    - Had to reinstall BT driver. No big deal and I can now work with my BT Mouse and BT Keyboard!

    Overall, I think it was worth it; heard from some that they hate it on the Tablet since graphics appear smaller. Doesn't matter to me because at 50 my nearsight is in the toilet and I have to wear reading glasses anyway.

    Trying it out in a vm here. A bit buggy, some windows (Explorer) don't respond to mouse clicks nor touches - then again, it could be an issue just running it in a vm. So far though, I like it, the new Start menu and all. Don't feel safe enough to try it out on the laptop directly installed, even dual boot, but might try it on the desktop.

    No, I've had that happen too. Not completely but sometimes the buttons won't respond for several seconds. Annoying.

    yes..got it the day it came out. Installed thru a 64 g flash drive and boot from it. Have been a couple glitches but overall it seems to be working well. Really like the new look. I hear there is a new build going to be released very soon

    Yeah, I really hope a new build comes soon. I love the preview, but I wish I had the charms bar back :(

    I was using it when I was using a laptop. Now that I'm switching to something else, the Surface Pro 3 will be here Friday apparently, I'm going to stick with 8.1 for a while. I plan on using it as a tablet, after all, and that isn't what this preview is about.

    On my Dell Venue 8 tablet; I have the charms - but I have to use my finger to activate; can't get them to show using my mouse.
