    Join us January 21st to hear about next Windows 10 chapter


    On Wednesday, January 21st 2015 – we will be holding an event here on Microsoft’s Redmond campus where we will talk about the next chapter of Windows 10. You’ll hear directly from senior leaders from the Operating Systems Group including Terry Myerson, Joe Belfiore and Phil Spencer who will talk about the Windows 10 consumer experience – continuing the story we began in September. You’ll also hear from our CEO Satya Nadella as well. We’re going to live webcast the event so mark your calendars! As we get closer to the event in January, watch for another blog post from me on where to tune-in and watch the live webcast. As you can imagine, we’re pretty stoked to show you what’s next for Windows 10!

    Seems they're more concerned with hyping their upcoming OS than testing the updates going out for previous ones. Most recent KB3004394 for 7 on Tuesday. Have an old netbook and wife's laptop with 7 and what a headache figuring out the problem until it surfaced all over the web.

    Sorry I couldn't resist a dig.

    It did seem like it was Crash Tuesday for a while there. There seem to have been a lot more fails than usual. Kind of makes you wonder what's going on with their in house tasting. You can argue that Windows 10 is an Alpha or Beta build all you want, but if people try it, and it has lame issues, people are still going to perceive it as a bad product and not want to buy into it. Negative press is negative press. IMHO, if they really want people to buy into Windows 10, they need to kick it up a notch.

    From email sent by Gabe Aul:


    Hello, Windows Insider –

    It's Gabe again, with more information on the latest and greatest for the Windows Insider Program. But first, I want to thank you again for all the great feedback we are receiving from Insiders – we continue to improve Windows 10 with your input. Keep the feedback coming!

    Just a reminder – if you haven't already installed Windows 10 Technical Preview, you can do it here. (If you are an IT pro, Windows 10 Technical Preview for Enterprise is here.) This is pre-release software, so check out Before you install to be sure it is right for you.

    Windows 10: The next chapter (January 21, 2015)

    We want you as an Insider to be among the first to hear today's announcement about our January 21 event. We'll share more about the Windows vision and the great features and benefits of Windows 10. We'll be livestreaming portions of the event, and Blogging Windows will be carrying blog posts that you'll want to see. Use the Insider Hub app (more on that below) and keep reading these emails to stay current – and mark your calendar!

    The Insider Hub app
    ◾ Included in the latest build (9879) is the new Insider Hub app. The Insider Hub is your one-stop shop for all the latest news and announcements regarding the Insider Program.

    ◾ Going forward, there may be news items that will be shared only through the Insider Hub. So be sure to check it frequently for new information, including notices about new features ready for you to test drive. In the Insider Hub we'll also post missions, for you to try out new features and then send us feedback.

    The Insider Hub isn't pinned to your Start menu/Start screen so you'll need to find it (and pin it!). Open it at least once so you'll receive notifications from the app on important news and announcements.


    Info for IT pros

    ◾On November 20 we hosted an almost four-hour webcast through the Microsoft Virtual Academy – Windows 10 Technical Preview Fundamentals for IT Pros. During the webcast, we talked about the enterprise vision for Windows 10, as well as new features and enhancements coming in the UI, new security and identity features, new management and Windows Store capabilities, and deployment enhancements. The webcast is now available on the Microsoft Virtual Academy website.

    ◾ And be sure to also check out the blog posts on Windows 10 apps, management, deployment and security, with links to TechEd Europe sessions and more on these topics:

    Info for app builders
    ◾App builders who are Insiders can develop applications that use AllJoyn capability in Windows 10 – download the SDK for Windows from the AllSeen Alliance. You can learn more at the MS Open Tech blog.

    You'll be hearing from me again in January – in the meantime, you can follow me on Twitter, and don't forget to check out Insider Hub to stay in touch.

    Thanks!

    I just got that e-mail too. I'm not running 10 at the moment so no access to the insider hub app. I do plan on installing the next release on my laptop for a look see though.

    I am interested in Windows 10 but I do not like testing software before release. I look forward to it then.

    I am not sure what you mean with your comment but I remember beta testing Windows 7 and it caused errors with some of the games I love to play. I do not want to repeat that!
