Windows 10 preview - Trying it?

Any tips, tricks, new features found, advice, gripes etc from anyone?
Personally I'm really liking it so far, build 10049
This build comes with Project Spartan, the new IE replacement.

The current build has been really unstable for me.

Also not a fan of most of the UI changes - if anything it's more metro, noi les like everyone wanted

needing to do a registry hack to allow anonymous network shares is a pain

Mine has been really quite stable, I suppose that would be hardware dependent to a degree? maybe buggy on some hardware and not others.

Tried a previous version. Won't run at 1920 x 1080, or was it 1680 x 1050, I can't recall. Will try a newer version in a few months, or wait for final. I'm sure there is a way to fix it, but couldn't be bothered. Oh, I have it a VirtualBox.

Mines running fine on 1680x1050, must try on a 1920x1080 tomorrow to test that.

Virtualbox would be the difference, perhaps. Maybe I haven't done the add-ons.

Had the latest preview version installed on vmware but it was thrashing the hdd at everything I did. Not sure if its vmware incompatibility or the release. Will wait until the RC comes out to try again. Did look nice though.
