Ever since Microsoft released the preview program for its latest operating system Windows 10, the preview program has had a million users help test out the operating system as revealed by the company. Microsoft projects that the number of users that opt into the preview program are to steadily rise in the coming months.
Joe Belfiore, Corporate Vice President of Operating Systems at Microsoft, said that they’re able to iron out any bugs or technical glitches through user feedback as 200,000 reports have already been received by Microsoft on its early version of Windows 10 with requests of including the option to remove the new search and task view buttons and a Start Menu animation.
Belfiore went on to say that 64 percent of Windows 10 Technical preview users have installed the operating system on actual PCs rather than virtual machines. Belfiore also feels confident that the number of preview program users are a good indication that the feedback that they’re receiving will be greatly beneficial to the overall development of the operating system as they can be sure the users are long-term users.
At this current point in time, Microsoft has no clear plan on when the next build of the Windows 10 Technical preview will be available for download. Belfiore says that it is indeed “coming soon” though and the company is definitely acting on implementing requested features as well as fix bugs and technical glitches. Belfiore went on to add that during the two weeks since the Windows 10 Technical preview program has been released, Microsoft have learned a fair bit on what the community wants and is looking to listen closely to community feedback in order to flesh out the operating system before its release.
Microsoft will regularly update the Windows 10 preview program up until the final version is released some time next year. In the meantime, be sure to check out the Windows 10 preview program here.
