At the San Francisco event where Microsoft unveiled the new Windows 10, fans of the product were promised a technical preview version, the software giant has now delivered on that promise.
Microsoft has successfully transited from internal previews to an open invitation which says, “Join us as we build Windows 10.
However, we must point out that, you install the Windows 10 technical preview on a spare PC. This version of of Windows OS comes without warranty. Alot of things can go wrong if you install this on your dedicated PC, data could go missing and that could really cost you much.
Microsoft is asking only users who want to genuinely becoming a part of the process to get involved, “This program is designed exclusively for people who want be involved in the process.” We prefer, ‘exclusively for anyone who dares’.
If you are not an expert, using this product might not be for you and Microsoft has warned, “We’re not kidding about the expert thing. So if you think BIOS is a new plant-based fuel, Tech Preview may not be right for you.”
Basically, you need a machine with at least 1 GHz processor, 1 GB RAM, 16 GB HDD and a graphic card that can run Direct X9 with WDDM driver effortlessly. Also, internet connection and a Microsoft account is required to complete the process. You will be gifted with the home and enterprise version, so the choice is yours.
It is important to note however, that the Technical Preview doesn’t have a roll back feature. If you decide to install it on your dedicated PC, you should have a backup of your old operating system, just in case things don’t go as planned.
