    With windows 10 around the corner,a lot of hype has been building.I've started to ask myself if I should be installing it when it comes.It is after all a technical preview and is bound to have bugs, will all apps run on it? How will the phones hardware be affected. I'm starting to think it may be a wiser to wait a few months or until initial bugs/errors have been ironed out.

    Just wondering what others are intending to do,jump right in ? Wait ?
    Am I right to be concerned ?

    Of course your right to be concerned, it appears this is not the same beast the Preview for Developer's was, which was a finished product.

    Personally, I'd probably try to wait a week, see how it goes. But my eagerness'll probably get the better of me and pull a Leeroy Jenkins.

    I have installed 8.1 as soon as it was available, and all updates it received. Didnt have any problems at all. But not sure I want to install 10 right away. in fact on one website I read that it might be available in Feb. 4

    Not in any rush. Nothing I can't live without until a full consumer release.

    There is no doubt that I will install it as soon as its released, but yes there is a reason to be concerned like any technical preview and beta, there is going to be plenty of bugs and yes chances are some apps wont work. If you have reservations about installing the tech preview then I would wait also, but like xandros9 I am eager to try it.

    If they allow a path for a simple rollback to 8.1 in case of problems, I'll do it. Otherwise, I'll wait for those braver than me to try it out first.

    I'll just wait for others with an AT&T Lumia 635 try it, if all goes well after a week I will most likely download it too. :D

    If you're not prepared to do a full reinstall on any given day, you should absolutely wait. Likely for another month or 3, as it will take time to work out the kinks. More than a week, too!

    I purchased a Lumia 822 on eBay to install it on. Not my daily driver (Lumia 822).

    "Should you,will you install w10 technical preview on your only windows phone ??"

    No and No.

    See my post here about Preview for Developers and apply it doubly for the Win 10 Phone Insider program.

    If you have a Lumia you can use the recovery tool to roll back but if you have Samsung or HTC there may not be any way to roll back.

    On Ativ S you can roll back. I'll install TP on my Ativ S, my only phone. Ofc, it it sill be available to it.
    I do have a (locked) Lumia 620 with cracked screen, but can't use that, and don't feel like repairing it jusr for TP.

    I've been running Windows10 on my laptop the day after it came out. No problems at all, no crashes, no strange things. For Phone I will see, because apparently there will not be Skype available. But I really like the new notification area and the one in 8.1 needs an update.

    In essence, if it is as stable as Win10 on the PC I will install it on the phone too.

    I'm waiting. WP8.1 Update gave me most of my wishlist items and I'm pretty happy with it. The only thing I'm really looking forward to is the "cursor pointer stick" or whatever the official name is. THAT is sorely needed, but otherwise I love how 8.1 Update turned out. Maybe after 10 has been debugged some on phones I'll try, but I'm in no hurry.

    I probably wouldn't install it on my only Windows Phone, but I will install it on my old 635 as soon as it comes out. Just as I didn't install the Win 10 Technical Preview on my Surface Pro 3, but I did on an old PC.

    In years past I often used to flash new ROMs from XDA on my old Windows Mobile phones but I don't have the time to mess around setting it up and experimenting or fixing errors that I used to.

    I use a Lumia 535 as my daily phone and have my old Lumia 620 all set up to install Windows 10.. hopefully the preview might not be as buggy as expected but will keep my fingers crossed..

    I'll stick it on my 920 before I decide whether to stick it on my 830
