    Probably not immediately. I am interested, by my SP3 is my work machine and installing 10 Preview onto it could cause issues.

    I really want to, but too reliant on my SP3 right now. The MS preview video I saw today suggested that you do it on a "secondary PC" as it will certainly have "rough edges" for a while. Not gonna put that on my baby quite yet. :)

    I wonder if I could run it on virtual machine in VMware Workstation.

    Well, I certainly won't slap it on my SP3, but on one of the "non-essential" PCs for sure. :)

    I'll be popping the preview on to a 2nd partition on my desktop PC to try, depending on how 'stable' it is I may consider putting it on the SP3.

    Here's a question: will the recovery utility restore back to an original SP3? That is, if I install the preview to a new partition (I probably have plenty of space on my 256GB), and have issues, can I restore back to the factory partitioning?

    That's my question. If the answer is "yes," then I'll probably give it a shot. If I can't easily restore, then I'll only try it on my desktop (where it's very easy to be creative with partitioning).

    you must be joking. MSFT's "official" upgrades for Surface are buggy enough!
