Windows 10 Beta Tech Preview DOWNLOAD
Unless you’ve been wearing earplugs and covering your ears for the last few hours, you’re likely aware that Microsoft finally took the wraps off Windows 10 today, and promised that a developer preview would be released today as well. Best of all, it’s accessible to everyone, not just developers.
If you’ve been waiting to get your hands on Windows 10, now is your chance: Microsoft is making the same developer preview it handed out to developers at BUILD today available to users around the world, free of charge and without requiring a registration. This is a departure from what Microsoft has done with previous versions of Windows, where developer previews were only available to a narrow range of users, and only the next milestone, the first Beta, would be available publicly, and always with a registration. With this move, Microsoft is clearly trying to get more users in the game as early on in the development process as possible.
Windows 10 Tech Preview Features
- Win 10 is 40% faster than Win8.1.
- Compatible with Windows 8/Windows 8.1 drivers.
- Compatible with most applications.
- Menu-start returned!
- New solutions.
- Easy installation process.
- Exclusive BETA for HardcoreHacks.com users.
You can grab it in both 32-bit and 64-bit flavors, or the 64-bit version along with developer tools. The developer tools version requires a clean install, but if you have a Windows Vista, 7 or 8 installation on your machine, you can keep accounts, files and settings with a new installation. Windows XP users can upgrade and keep their accounts and files only. That said, we don’t really recommend installing this over your existing copy of Windows, as it’ll likely have a few quirks this early on in the preview. Hit the link below to check it out.

Something about Windows 10 Tech Preview
Windows 10 is the most important software release in Microsoft’s history. Among the many things Microsoft needs to sort out is the Windows 10 Start Menu, but there’s more to it than that. There are also debates about how Microsoft will sell Windows 10, with some kind of subscription model a possibility.
