    Anybody else notice a scrolling, barely visible, watermark that goes across the startmenu that says windows insider? It only appears on the computer that I have opted in for the windows insider program obviously. I just happened to catch a glimpse of it, and thought I was going crazy at first. On my system it seems to take 20 seconds for it to complete a "lap", and it is travelling from right to left.

    No, it is very light, so it is difficult to capture with a camera. It is in the background of the startmenu, you may even notice a vertical line scrolling across the bottom of the screen. It is very easy to miss

    Ok, it is actually scrolling the words I'm a windows insider, I'm still trying to capture it with a camera, but it is hard to see.

    Screenshots are not picking it up. I believe it is actually scrolling along the desktop, but is visible through the startmenu. It seems to be best visible with a grayish background. I've saw the I'm a windows insider watermark when I was loging off too. Easiest way is to open something like paint, make it full screen, fill with a med to dark gray, look very closely for a moving message. It is very hard to see, but there is lines and what seems like the edge of a cloud scrolling with it.

    If screenshots are not picking it up, it's your monitor

    I have 2 computers connected to this monitor via a kvm switch, only the computer that is opted in the insider program is showing the message. It is a transparent font, slightly sunk in, and it scrolls across the screen. I'm going to check my other computers when I get home to see if they show the message. Once you actually see it, it is easy to find.
