True, but who would volunteer to work for a company like Microsoft
without getting paid? If MS want work for free then they obviosly have
to make them Win 10 Home users use untested soft... And then just wait
for bugreports so that updates can be fixed before Win 10 Pro users
updates at their convenience.
