wasabi2k: to be pedantic, these are not beta releases.

A tech preview is more akin to alpha - as in stuff will be broken, which I assume you know.

They are making massive fundamental changes to how the start menu works, it is going to break. 

People wanted access to builds as they became available - they got it. 



I like this build a lot, much more polished than the last.  Like search in start menu looks nicer, brightness is adjustable now from quick settings.  Lots of bugs but design wise better.



Have you encountered the known issues?


Yeap Win32 apps don't launch from Start menu but launch fine from search


They should be OK if pinned to the Task Bar or launched from Run

So just updated to build 10061 and things seem quite speedy , Don't really think much of the project Spartan but I guess I am just used to using my browser of choice.

Spartan is average at present but its very early days, it does show a lot of promise

Does it give the option to go into the slow ring? The last update locked you into the fast ring, as the option to change it just got that rotating loading circle.

The last build really didnt like my laptop and wireless card. So much so I threw Ubuntu on it...

grabbed the ISO from a mate today, so Ubuntu bye bye and back to Win 10... again!




The little things make the biggest difference.

Interested to hear how the new build works. I use W10 as my main home machine, so if something breaks it'd be annoying! Will this be pushed out automatically or is it optional to move to the new build?

If you have updates set to ask before installing it wont be an issue. If you can't have breakages you should not really be using pre-release software on your main PC

It'd just be annoying, really. I have a ReFS disk and only own W7, so I'd have to buy 8.1 to tide me over for a few months until full release.

10074 finally completed install, still disk indexing so a bit choppy performance wise but that will settle. Good news Win32 Apps launch without issue

Just downloading 10074 now. Does anyone know if WHS2011 client connector will work with W10?




Life is too short to remove USB safely.
