*Update*
Build 10041 has audio and video driver issues. Cannot install audio driver, so no sound. Windows update wants to install video driver, and constantly fails. NO way to disable 3rd party driver updates. Calendar/Contacts/Mail apps broken.

Build 10049 will NOT be available to "Slow Ring" users due to the build installing ALL language packs. Extremely long download times.

Restored 8.1 image and will wait for build 10061 to hit Slow Ring release and try again.
Issues aside, I do like it so far.

Currently on Build 10074, and nice and stable. Microsoft getting closer to release:

Received the above via Windows Update. Others on 7,8,8.1 will also be seeing this in the system tray. Purely voluntary.

Last night when I shut down my F@H rig, I found a flag offering a free upgrade to Windows 10 from Windows 7. Will consider it.
Then this morning, heard on radio news station that Microsoft® is officially releasing Windows 10 to the public on July 29th.

Which is quite fitting seeing the passion you have to run this thing :)

Don't think "passion" is the right word. I'm just testing from a somewhat knowledgeable user point of view. By no means am I anywhere near your level of expertise, although I can muddle through the occasional problem. The more serious problems I post here (heh heh).

Upgraded to build 10162. In this build IE is DEAD, replaced with Edge browser. Couple of nice things with Edge is being able to "write" on a web page and send to others (Web Note). More important to me is the ability to read an article WITHOUT all the ads (Reading View). Not sure how many more builds remain....

Correction: IE is still there, just not on the taskbar.

Still passion is the right word,investing time and effort to keep us updated with your finds. Once this thing is released we know a bit what to expect from windows update goofups, I.e. they even managed to break driver updates at one point. This means we need to be extra careful when updating enterprise environments.

Really, thank you so far for the information. All aside it makes an interesting read 8)

FWIW, I'm running it on a Dell Inspiron 11" convertible tablet, and have none of those issues. Of course, I have a larger drive, more RAM, and 64 Bit proc. I just wonder if I'll get to keep the "Professional" build, or if it will revert to "Home". Also imaged my Win 7 laptop today, just in case.....
