    Microsoft doesn't recommend Technical Preview as the main OS on one's everyday computer. Is it right for me? - Microsoft Windows

    They don't recommend using it as main OS, yet are offering it _now_ as an update to anyone running WIN7 or 8.. Kind of double edged..

    ​I get it but it could well come back and bite them in the *ss

    I have one question. They said Windows 10 will be free for Windows 7/8 users, but what will happen to users that use Windows 10 TP as main OS?
    Would they be able to upgrade for free to final build from TP?

    No problems here. Been using it at my main OS since the first preview. But you must know that there are risks. I, for example, am not too worried about having to repair the pc and/or reinstall Windows should it all go tits-up.

    I installed it on my main device, not liking the outcome, not that I didn't know the risk, but I out if experience I don't recommend it.

    Is there anything like I will not be able to use the technical preview after a certain date. It happened to me with windows 8.1 technical preview. I was not able to use it after 15th February last year.

    You were expected to officially update/buy your final release of WIN8. An announcement was made that Insider program members will be able to upgrade to the final release at no cost.

    I have seen quite a few people at my school using it as their main OS, actually. (Not too surprising, I guess, since it's UW and everyone here wants to work either for MSFT or Boeing.) I talked to a guy in one of my classes about it, I think with the first public build, and he said it was fine as far as beta OSs go.
    I will hopefully be installing it Monday night. I just have to get a USB drive in the mail to create my recovery drive and then I'm jumping in. I'm not worried about it, but I have plenty of experience doing my own OS recovery/reinstall/do from scratch stuff. I tried 7 when it was in beta, and again with 8 and have done some sketchy MBR recoveries. My favorite OS recovery was after I managed to accidentally delete a file critical to the GUI and display drivers on 7 :)

    I think that if you know what you're getting into and know how to fix it yourself when it breaks, jump right in. It's called software for a reason. It's soft and malleable. It's easy to do permanent damage to hardware, harder to permanently damage firmware, and just about everything software-wise is reversible if you know what you're doing.
    But if you aren't confident, stay away. It's good to have feedback from as many types of users as possible, but not at the expense of their system.

    If I were you, I would wait a couple more months for further releases. I get the feeling that you will need a more finished product.

    If you need to ask, probably not.

    It's not without bugs, tried hooking up my laptop to the TV yesterday and both displays became a garbled mess. Latest graphics driver installed.
