    So far this seems like a great build. No start or Cortana crashes. Everything seems quicker and more responsive.

    I got the transparent build but was hoping for the aero build.

    I had to revert back to Windows 8.1 on my Surface Pro 3 with an earlier build... If anyone is running 10074 on their SP3, let me know how it runs.This seems like a clean build, seeing as they had it prepared for immediately after //build/.

    I've been doing these builds for the last four or so now, and I have to say that I think we're finally at a stage where I would recommend it to someone who is tech savvy. It's still not perfect, but it's totally usable. And it's sleek :)

    Earlier builds were not so hot, and crashed often, etc. But this one is good :) So far so good, anyways.

    But I still don't trust it 100%. I'm backing up important work that I'm doing, but that's just a precaution.

    Anyone else have the issue that the start menu can only be resized up and down but not sideways?

    Mine works but I usually keep it full screen.

    So 10074 build does work properly? I've been seeing nothing but complaints about the start menu not working or loads of crashes. I'm still gonna wait for the free upgrade with my Windows 8.1

    Yeah, I've gone a couple hours now without something crashing. It feels ready and looks slick. On the previous build I was holding my breath any time I clicked on something.

    Did any of you get the aero build?

    I was one of those people complaining, but I'd like to say I was publicly troubleshooting more than complaining. I think they put some work in getting this one solid for build.

    True. Btw, is there any major difference between 10061 and 10074 build?

    For me the most major thing is start isn't crashing, which is a big plus.

    Cortana has a big overhaul and the UI just seems more polished. Many little things that add up to a nicer experience. The sluggishness that was in 10061 seems to be gone as well.

    No major issues with this build on my desktop. I like how this OS looks and how responsive it is. Even Firefox is amazingly fast rendering webpages on this build and Edge browser is no joke when it comes to speed. It still has some optimization issues especially how it responds in Windows Central Forums but it is coming along nicely.

    But 10074 is just like 10049 for me, no problems

    I've seen a little glitchiness in tablet mode. That makes sense since that had some of the biggest changes for this build.

    Windows Central is one of the slowest rendering web sites I visit. Oddly, it works great in IE with touch scrolling. But every other browser, and IE with a mouse, I feel like making a cup of coffee while I wait for the page load to settle down.

    It certainly does, most people have probably upgraded to this build which means they are still going to have lingering problems from older builds. I just created a fresh VM for this build and it works perfectly, for a preview at least.

    Nvidia have just released some Windows 10 drivers, it might be worth checking them out.

    Probably due for a refresh at some point because with Firefox and IE, its fine. Using Edge? You could do your taxes by hand, mail them and get your refund quicker. :)

    As of now my start menu and search stuff is broken. (won't open) and IE is a lot more unstable.

    Although it could be my hardware's quirks. Thankfully I have the important stuff pinned to my taskbar for now.

    My tablet wont log in with this build. My desktop is working though.

    Edit: Apparently it only wont log in with my PIN, using my actual password worked.

    Seems better but had fair amount of issues at times going between tablet mode and desktop, start menu opening but closing but eventually working. In tablet mode and hitting the start menu would bring up cortana then apps that I had closed while in tablet mode all showed up in desktop mode. Only thing I've seen in Tablet Mode that works well is if you have the task bar in auto hide mode you can bring it up with an up swipe and down swipe to get rid of it again. Too bad there isn't a "Auto Hide Task Bar in Tablet Mode" option.

    Yay my start menu and stuff is working now! I guess the most recent minor update fixed it.

    I had a simular problem but I found if I click the icon for the options at the login screen, I could select the PIN icon. Then it worked from then on. In Win 8.1, all you had to do was create one for use and it was at the log in screen. Here I had to choose it at the login screen. Might be an unfinished feature.
