Join the Windows Insider Program so you can be part of every key moment along the way as we create Windows 10. You'll get Windows 10 Technical Preview, all the builds as soon as they're available, and an easy-to-use feedback app.
It's a way to say: be a beta tester for free.

Not quite true.

Yes, it's free.  Go here http://windows.microsoft.com/en-nz/windows/preview to enrol.  No you don't get the latest Microsoft products, you get access to the Windows 10 Technical Preview program - that is the early versions of Windows 10 to test and try out.
