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.
