Who are your canary users? This is out of an official Microsoft book:

You should populate your test group with users who are more likely to “offer feedback” if something goes wrong. Just as a canary in a coal mine was used by miners to detect dangerous gas, “canary users” are likely to raise an alarm when a software update causes problems that indicate it shouldn’t be deployed in a production environment. Users who complain are much more valuable as deployment targets for update testing than users who ignore problems and do not provide feedback.

Ha! Go Google & you can tell your canary users to take a break. Right?!

Don't think this has been mentioned here yet, but I just found out that Testnav supports linux again, as of 7.5.16.  (Fedora and Ubuntu)

 http://www.pearsononlinetesting.com/TestNav/7/requirements_testnav_7_5_16.html
TestNav 7.5.16 Hardware and Software Requirements. The minimum hardware requirements for all workstations used to access TestNav are listed on this page. You can find the version of TestNav that you are using by looking at the URL or at the bottom of the TestNav login screen in the browser.
