Change is afoot as Microsoft's Dona Sarkar steps down as head of the Windows Insider Program, which has caused some discussion online as to where people want the Insider Program to go next. With new leadership in tow, many are hoping to see the Insider Program go back to its roots through technical deep-dives of upcoming features, changes, and more.

Under Dona Sarkar, the Insider Program saw expansion into more than just testing Windows. Several community fellowship programs saw the Insider Program leveraged as a way to teach those in less fortunate circumstances how to code under the Insiders4Good initiative. This is just one example of how the Insider Program was being used to help people across the world.

I have personally found this focus with the Insider Program to be humbling and an excellent use of the program's community. However, many online are asking Microsoft to return the Insider Program to its roots, asking for buggier builds, with earlier features, and more technical deep-dives into plans and upcoming changes to the OS as a whole. The Insider Program used to be a great place to hear about what's next for Windows, but it's been a while since the program was used to talk about Windows' roadmap.

We want to know what you want to see from the Insider Program next. Would you like to see more community fellowship programs that teach people how to code, or would you prefer more technical deep-dives into the testing and previewing of Windows? Perhaps you have a radical new idea that the program hasn't yet seen? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.
