    No. Its the same program in terms of signing up, but you choose what to install it on.

    I probably will give 10 a go on my 920, depending on how baked it is, but 10 is not touching any of my PCs for the time being.

    Nope, you still have a choice. You can subscribe to insider program and not install preview software. You actually have to take a few steps (like download a separate tool) to install it on a desktop PC.

    In short: don't worry, be happy. You can test all you want with your Lumia 520 without any risk to your PC or other devices. Read more here: Before you install Windows 10 Technical Preview - Microsoft Windows
