Microsoft: Over 1 million sign up to test Windows 10 Technical Preview Microsoft has announced that over 1 million consumers have registered to be part of the Windows Insider program that allows for earlier beta testing of the upcoming Windows 10 operating system.
Says the software giant: "Over the weekend, we hit 1 million registrants for the Windows Insider Program. That equates to a lot of people using the Windows 10 Technical Preview and sending us feedback. How much feedback? Over 200,000 pieces of user-initiated feedback have been submitted to us via the Windows Feedback app from Windows Insiders like you."

Of course, this doesn't necessarily equate to 1 million users actually downloading the OS to test, but Microsoft's Joe Belfiore says a significant portion have. Of note, 36 percent of users have tried the OS's Technical Preview in a virtual machine, while the rest have actually installed it on a hard drive.

Many of the testers are using the OS for more than just a simple test here and there, with 68 percent launching at least 7 apps per day and 25 percent launching at least 26 apps per day.

You honestly have the stones to say this to anyone else at all..? Really?! Wow. Kettle, I dub thee ebon!

Furthermore, I simply don't like the tile-based interface, and I never will. I'm exactly as entitled to my opinion on the matter as you are. Deal with it or don't, I simply cannot be arsed.
