1 Million Users Now Testing Windows 10

/ 2 years ago


The Windows 10 Technical Preview has been doing the rounds for two weeks now and so far, it seems the new OS is proving a big hit. Microsoft made an announcement this week that their Windows 10 operating system now has more than 1 million testers. This number was expected to be a bit higher, but given that user feedback from consumers, developers and technology journalists has been very positive, I’m sure Microsoft are just happy that people like what they’ve made so far.

Microsoft have said that they’ve received more the 200,000 pieces of user initiated feedback. The OS is obviously unfinished right now, so it’s still in need of debugging and there are many features missing, but currently it seems like development has been progressing well. Microsoft also said that out of the current batch of users using Windows 10, one-third are running it virtually, the rest are running it natively.

Personally, I haven’t bothered downloading the Technical Preview just yet, but what hands on time I have had with the new OS has been promising. Don’t worry if you feel left out of the testing, there will still be a few rounds of beta testing in the not too distant future before Microsoft go to retail and at least there will be more features in place by then.

Have you tried the Windows 10 Technical Preview yet? Let us know what you think in the comments.

    I haven’t bothered with it yet and I won’t. I’ll have plenty of time to use and play around with it when it gets officially released, in the meantime I’m more than happy enough to let others do the beta testing.
