More than 2.8 million have signed up to Microsoft's Windows Insider program

Microsoft today shared some statistics from its Windows Insider Program. Stephen Elop revealed that more than 2.8 million consumers have signed up to the program, offering more than 900,000 pieces of feedback to help shape the future of Windows 10 across the board.

If you've never heard of the program, it's an optional service provided by Microsoft to let users experience the next version of Windows before public release. The program is aimed at early adopters and the 'enthusiast' crowd who enjoy beta testing new software.Microsoft encourages testers to send feedback on their experience through a specialized app, which includes ratings and a place to leave notes to the Windows development team.

Those statistics are not bad going, Microsoft.

  • Lumia 640 and 640xl as discussed before
  • I'm concerned that only 900k pieces of feedback have been shared. That means that over 2/3 of all people with Windows 10 are just running it and aren't helping Microsoft.
  • 900k of feedbacks, does that includes the "Me Too"?
  • I doubt it. saying 'me too' isn't actual feedback. However, it does allow Microsoft sort through which issues need to be addressed ASAP. I'm hoping they'll fix the connection issue with 5GHz band wireless soon, and yes I have sent feedback, as have many other people.
  • I have sent feedback,when asked & when needed it's been pretty stable.
  • Ive found wireless to be better then what it was on 8.1(in the limited time I was able to test)
  • House are they not helping? Any random crash report is help. The more people the more bugs get found. They are watching what we do.
  • That's probably because the other 2/3rds cant install win10 as they have the insider installed on currently unsupported devices
  • Yes. Me too.
  • Yeah, windows 10 isn't bad.. It's almost functional as a home pc..
  • Still waiting for 930 to be supported. This is not funny anymore :|. Also my Toshiba tablet also cannot install win10 TP because of the compressed OS which...again...is not yet supported. 
  • I'm one of them.
  • Me don't I. Have an error
  • I'm surprised he has the balls to boast that millions signed up even though only a small fraction of those are actually using w10 and leaving feedback.
  • Will install Win10 on my system once I get it on my Phone 1520. As to feed back 900k is a lot of stuff to work through and correlate.
  • Is it just like preview for developers or different
