Hello there,

My personal opinion is no - I'll wait for release candidate at least, as a lot of software vendors won't be working on Windows 10 support until at least Release Candidate is achieved.

I use windows 10 as a daily driver on my desktop, but I am also a highly technical user and this is a clean install on a different hard drive from my other operating systems. It is fairly stable for me but I have had a few blue screens, mostly related to graphics and games.

 

With that said if you do choose to experiment with it, install it on a separate drive or partition that way your existing data is safe and you still have an OS that you can use as a backup if windows 10 fails. :)

Sorry, I've done a bit of research and found out I wasn't being very clear. What I mean is, is Windows 10 insider program slow channel stable enough for daily use? Please edit my post to include this mods.

Even with it being a "slow" update cycle doesn't make it any more stable or any less prone to breaking, it is all new code and new code has bugs. That said they might catch a few bugs and issues before being let out on the slow channel but bugs will still get through.

I have Windows 10 installed on a secondary machine and use it daily. I'm happy with the stability of it so far, and I've only ran into a few issues. With that said, I think if you are asking about stability on a technical preview than the preview may not be for you. It's geared towards users who are willing to test out the new changes, troubleshoot problems, and offer feedback to Microsoft to help shape the final product. Like Alex said, waiting for the release candidate might be a better option for you.

Have it running in a VM and on an aged laptop. I really like some of the newer stuff under the hood.

 

Voted no.

 

There are odd problems now and then that spring up on both systems which cause me to vote no. But if your hardware is supported and you use your own favorite applications (not the metro stuff) you could possibly pull off a daily driver.

 Yes, in a sense.  Meaning... I use it daily & it is very stable.  But, there is difference between using it daily & what "Daily Driver" means.  DD means Primary, maybe one's ONLY "production machine"... if that is what you are asking then the answer is NO.  Never run a beta OS as THE machine.  as a VM, as a "Spare Box", on a VHD or dual-boot but, never as your regular "Daily Driver"... as long as you have a current NON-BETA OS, sure ignore it & run Win10 every day... but, not as your only computer... not until it is not long beta.


Cheers,
Drew

The Windows 10 Technical Preview (TP) is an evaluation copy for enterprise users.Basically, it’s an early test version. Businesses are given the chance to try it out, see how it fits into their routines and provide Microsoft with feedback. Ideally, Microsoft will integrate the collected data into a final product that meets the needs of its customers.

 

So what is it about the Technical Preview that makes it unsuitable to replace your main operating system or for private use?

 

I didn't  recommend that you install this preview if you are not an IT professional or not professionally managing corporate PCs or devices. We also do not recommend that you install this preview on your primary home or business PC.Hope it will help you.

"So what is it about the Technical Preview that makes it unsuitable to replace your main operating system or for private use?"

This is easy to answer as follows:
​A person has 1 computer running a valid, genuine, OS in it.  They own it, they bought & paid for it.  Now, they wipe it out w/ a beta OS.  It is gone AND so is its Recovery partition... replaced by the Windows 10 Recovery... they cannot revert to the original OS... except via a clean install of that original OS.  Something has to be done because running the beta OS does no good, @ all, because it expires!  Self-destructs by a certain date of only a very few months.  Now, the person has nothing, no OS, @ all.  Betas are free & ONLY on (a short) loan.  Transcends these TPs... it applies to swapping out any "production machine" w/ a beta OS.  Leaves a person backed into a corner.

Nor is it ever necessary to do this absolute taboo.  If no 'spare box', there is dual-boot, VHD & VM as available acceptable options, methods.  Enough right choices, there is no need to use a wrong choice.

Cheers,
Drew

RobertHD, the icons of an OS doesn't affect it's stability at all.

Or the rest of its performance or its Features or its ease of use.
