    Since the build 10586 is being shipped on the Lumia 950, should we leave the Win 10 Insider Preview? Or should we wait a little longer?

    Depends if you want to receive newer preview builds, as they are released to Insiders first.

    The operator is "should", which implies a "need" or necessity - and answering the question in that context would be tricky because "need" is always subjective.

    However, there are benefits in being able to leave the Insider Program - something which Microsoft has made easy for us. Considering that the Lumia 950 shipped with 10586 (at least that's what I've read), we could safely presume that 10586 is somewhat RTM. Thus, once 10586 is installed in our phone we could simply opt out of the program to protect ourselves from automatically receiving succeeding builds which may be more unstable than 10586 (although the odds of that happening may be slim).

    Nonetheless, the beauty of the simplicity of opting out works in opting back in. With that, the safest route suggests itself to be:
    1. Once 10586 is installed, opt out of Insider Program.
    2. Once a new build is announced, read about it first.
    3. If it is stable and safe, then simply opt back in to receive the new build.
    4. Once new build is received, repeat step 1.

    Its taken a few months of waiting many updates and resets on phones and other devices, but finally as of 10 minutes ago I now have W10 on my Xbox One, desktop, Surface Pro 3, HP Stream and 1520, personally I am going to take a rest from the insiders as I find my self wishing my life away too much.

    Have fun whatever you decide to do.
