How strange that people want to start customizing an OS that's just a few days old. The time for that - if need be - is when it's the final build and released.
Now's the time for testing, not adding 3rd party start menus, etc.

Part of customizing and tweaking the settings is needed to find bugs and report feedback. Now is the time for feedback, and doing that provides that.

Exactly. It has to be stretched to its limits, to find those limits. Compatibility, alternative methods, third party software functionality, everything must be tested.

I also want to add, installing it and just using it is not actually testing it. Playing and adjusting every setting, installing all kinds of programs etc is a great way to test the os stableness and for bugs. Even though you would or might not like or use it with certain settings set, being a good beta tester is about testing everything-not just the things you would normally do/use.

I've read that 10 will be a cloud OS. Does this mean that we'll have to always be online to use Win10 computers? Won't we have hard drives anymore?

No, it's nothing like that!

You can use Windows 10 with a local account without any cloud services if you want to. It uses local storage as any other previous Windows version.

Perhaps MS should have provided a checklist for features/functions that MS really wants us to test (initially).

OK, this was a bit of a shock because I was overseas working, when I couldn't get into either the nine or ten forum today but the confirmation/new password email just arrived minutes after the request.
Thanks to TPTB.
