Windows 10 Technical Preview: Do you prefer the slow ring or fast ring? (poll)

Windows 10 Technical Preview: Do you prefer the slow ring or fast ring? (poll)

Microsoft is expected to roll out Windows 10 build 9879 to slow ring participants next week. This build was also released to fast ring participants of the Insider Program two weeks ago, but featured numerous bugs and performance issues. This “updated” build for slow ring participants will feature several improvements and fixes.

For those that did not know, you can switch between slow and fast ring updates in PC Settings > Update and Recovery > Preview Builds. Everyone is on the slow ring, by default. If you want to see the build right as it becomes available, you will want to be on the fast ring. If you want to wait a bit and let major bugs get fixed before you install the build, wait for the slow ring.

In this case, Windows 10 build 9879 was released on November 12th to those on the fast ring, and has since been identified to have some issues that need to be resolved. Luckily, those on the slow ring will be receiving this build with less issues or bugs to worry about.

Things brings me to my question. For those of you in the Insider Program, do you prefer the slow ring or the fast ring? Do you prefer to be on the bleeding edge or wait a week or two for the same build but with improvements? How do you feel about the slow and fast ring process? Discuss!
