I'd installed it on my laptop a few months ago, using my Outlook account and it ran fine, if a bit slow.

Last night, I also installed it on my main rig (see specs) using VMware. I put the DVD image onto the SSD as well as the virtual machine files and the whole thing installed in about 5 minutes flat! It also runs pretty quickly. I'll be putting on the latest update, build 9926, this weekend too. See this article for details: www.theregister.co.uk/2015/01/23/windows_10_build_9926

Note that I'm not doing much with the preview due to the intrusive data logging that Microsoft are doing with it. Other people may be comfortable with this, but I'm not.

That's the exact reason as to why i also have it on my old laptop that i rarely use, currently i have only installed the tech preview build 9926, and last years first tech preview was a little too buggy for me so i ditched it but build 9926 seems to be streamlined and works great for now.

Running ok on my main rig but i also had issues with sound and the programs that come with it.

Did a bit of searching and came across drivers from danK and now i can use all the programs again, Seems to have everything needed in the pack.

Has anyone heard when W10 comes out can we do a full install from 8.1? I don't like migrating stuff over. I'm using a W7 Ulti -> ($15)Upgrade to 8.1 Pro(was able to do full install)

I'm using W10 on my racing games build so I don't mind the keyloggin. I'm also using it on two dedicated crunchers so yeah, no issue with the keylogging either.

that being said, it's pretty fast. Might be placebo effect but I think it boots faster than W8.1

I sometimes get that issue to and not sure there is a proper fix for it.

My main issue was loss of sound but this was the same in windows 8.1 before the new driver came out and the only way i could get the sound to work was to send the pc to sleep as it fixes the problem haha, only have to do this once to.

Settings > Update & recovery > Windows Update > Check for updates

And what AV do you mean...Defender?

What's "good enough" for you?

Defender's just fine by me...BTW. That or MSE suffice...for my uses.:)

Desktop W10 preview is great so far.
No so the phone W10. Just uninstalled it. Different setup menus, not sure of the benefit. WiFi and some apps giving problems. Enough. Downgrading is easy with the Recovery Tool.

Thanks for the heads up! My phone is too much of a daily need for me to do a preview of Windows phone 10. I'll keep my WP 8.1 and wait for the RTM.

der clou 2(the sting!) works perfectly in win10, both win7 and win8,1 doesnt go after main menu
pirate odyssey to each his own - sound problems(dont got this issue in win8.1)
rest is ok in win8.1(using it from beta - for example, ceasar 3 works fine)
overall, win8.1 and win10 both got main lan drivers and installation of rest through internet download automatically(it's very comfortable not to search for some "rare" drivers - it will install all by his own)
i'm missing charms and metro-start, it was realy awesome:)
if they wont add this in win10, i'll stay at win8,1

I cant see it in my current build (9926) but it might be because im on enterprise? but you can do it by right clicking on the taskbar going to properties and the start menu tab at the top their should be a check box to re-enable metro.

Hmmm...I liked the Start icon from 9926 a lot more. And what happened to the startup/shutdown sounds? Are they gone in build 10041? Or is it on my end?
