After bashing MS for so long for how they've destroyed the SP3 with the W10 upgrade, I thought I would give an update on the progress MS has made to date.
Battery life has risen back to 8.1 levels, and when you enable hibernation, you won't have to worry about the tablet burning all your battery life in your bag. These we 2 huge issues for me that are now fixed, for the most part. I would rather have connected standby that sips power like my SP2 did, and that will come I'm sure, but it isn't here yet.
Before the last update I would have to restart several times a day for a multitude or reasons, I'm on day 3 without a restart and all is perfectly fine. My tablet is waking properly, I haven't lost use of my keyboard, mouse or screen, so far it's MAC stable.
Tablet Mode, I hated it! Now, and I don't know if MS changed the way it worked or I've gotten used to it, but TM is completely usable now and a very nice feature of W10.
Edge, I hated it! Still don't like it! Somewhat of an improvement I guess. MS has to enable extensions, swipe forward and back and full screen browsing with an intuitive navigation bar.
Start menu is awesome! They just need to get rid of that stupid hamburger button to access the all programs menu, just make it scrollable!
Processes used to keep my CPU fan running all the time. Now the back of my SP3 rarely gets warm and I can't remember the last time I heard my fan run, maybe for the last update.
Love all the new menus for finger use.
I know this isn't a list of all the problems, these were the big ones for me.

Just wanted to say Good Job Microsoft! Keep up the good work!

Edge definitely needs work. Random freezes too often, especially when converting from laptop to tablet mode when the device is in sleep mode. To be fair, IE freezes once in a while too, which I am using more these days.

As for another bug, on screen KB blacks out when ur trying to log in after standby or hibernation. I use the split keyboard pattern. I recently switched to full keyboard pattern, and that seemed to be ok. Wish they will fix it, but I doubt they even know about the issue.

That's the first I've heard of the keyboard issue, maybe because I only use the full one. Edge and I.E. Are very stable for me but I think that due to content blockers, I rarely have a lock up, but oh man does Edge ever need some bells and whistles.

I'm not having a problem with the keyboard either. I use the full one as well. Edge DOES need a lot of work. It can be hit or miss. Some times it works no worries, then other times it's really finicky.

Generally, I'm not having any major problems.
