Joe Belfiore from Microsoft has announced 1 million registrants for Windows insider program in a blog post today. 200, 000 user feedback are already in place for Windows 10 Technical preview via the Windows insider program. Out of the 1 million Windows 10 tech preview installations, 64% are on actual PCs. Joe has also teased about a new Windows 10 Build coming soon to the PCs running technical preview.
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.
Wondering whether people are running this on actual PCs or just “trying it out” for a few minutes in a VM (Virtual Machine)? Well, only 36% of installations of the Windows 10 Technical Preview are in VMs. The remaining 64% are all on actual PCs. This makes us confident that a lot of the feedback is based on “medium-term” use and not just a few minutes of experimentation. (If you’re running the Windows 10 Technical Preview in a VM that’s cool too.)
Another indicator that we have solid usage is the number of app-launches that happen on a device. 68% of you are launching more than 7 apps/day, and some people are using it even more heavily. We have seen about 25% of devices running the Windows 10 Technical Preview launching more than 26 apps per day, and 5% launching a whopping 68 apps per day!
In case, you are interested in installing Windows 10 on your PC / Laptop /Notebook, you need to read this. I have got it on my Windows 7 running Netbook and I am really happy with performance improvement, it brings. In fact, if your PC runs Windows 7 SP1, you can upgrade to the Windows 10 preview by simply using Windows Update.
