The Windows 10 Technical Preview has been available for a few weeks now and it seems to have met with some success with journalists, bloggers and the curious. Proof of this is, if we are to believe the figures put forward by Microsoft , then more than a million people have already registered for the program set up by the publisher.
In itself, this is not a very impressive figure, but we must not lose sight of the fact that the firm has not communicated much on this famous program. Few individuals are aware of its existence.
It's not over yet because the firm has also recorded no less than 200,000 feedbacks since the launch of this test phase. This shows a certain investment on the part of the users and it bodes well for the future.
In addition, only 36% of testers would have installed the OS in a virtual machine. 64% have therefore chosen to install it on their computer.

What about applications, then? Here again, Microsoft gives fairly precise figures. Most Windows 10 users would use more than seven apps per day. One in four would throw more than twenty-six, and 5% more than sixty-eight! I don't know what you think, but these data frankly make me dizzy.
Here, for example, right now, I only have nine applications open on my machine.
Which ones? Spotify, TweetDeck, Final Cut Pro, Lightroom, Photoshop, the scanner, Safari, Chrome and Ulysses. The funny thing about it is that I rarely open more.
As some of you may know, I had a lot of fun with this Technical Preview and I must admit that I was pleasantly surprised by the changes in this version. The interface is much more rational, and it is also very pleasant to use. Especially with this famous virtual office system.
