I assume this will be the one we'll be bug-bashing.

I know you have a test machine.....with each new insider preview release do you actually see any physical changes....for the better.

Nope it still remains an ugly rectangular black cube shaped box with a bunch of wires sticking out the back. :)

Seriously though not much that is obvious to me in so far as what i do on a daily basis.
I always check my start menu and tiles to look for any changes and with the exception of the annoying tendency for the hamburger menu to expand on hover (which I hate by the way), nothing else really grabs my attention.

They've added a right click "Uninstall" to "Notepad" but not to "Paint" for some reason.

I'll be glad when MS will let you uninstall all of those freaking apps on a permanent basis. Also to include IE, Edge. I don't use any of that crap so why should I be made to keep them.

Possibly a personal point of view?
For example, I m not much into games, MS solitaire collection does it for me. Not specialisig in any particular activity, so I have little third party software on my computers.

No doubt at all - some of the extras MS have put on, are rarely, or never, used by me or my immediate family, but, having said that, I am pretty much an "all round" user and,therefore, do make use of all the peripherals ready available in Windows.
A couple of exceptions, perhaps. I have installed a third part graphics program which offers more than "Paint". The all round VLC player, and, because of its hugely improved efficiency, the "everything" search program.
FWIW, I am using the Edge beta as my standard browser. After experimenting with others, I found that, at least for me, it was perfect.

That was a painfully slow install - and for very little change to the previous release.

Looks like they have added a few more items the Apps Optional Features - meaning you can uninstall some items that way.

Why they are allowing right-click | uninstall via start menu on some items - as trouble noted - but not on all, seems odd to me.

Me too! Nothing new there. Curiously, to add fuel to the fire, we have always been able to uninstall "Mail" - a program they appear to think highly of.

It sure was and I'm not exactly sure why. Many of the earlier builds in this version were also quite slow to install, so much so that I gave up on even commenting about the issue but now it seems to be back to its' old ways.
