    Hi

    I installed the preview yesterday on my surface 3 but I thinking of removing it after playing around with it for 5mins. It seems a bit buggy for me(kinda concerning since they want to release end of next month)

    First I am not sure if I am missing something but I was expecting that with windows 10 the keyboard would automatically show up when you go into an input field but this is still not the case. I am not sure what I am doing wrong. I go to like Firefox and click on the url bar but no keyboard shows up. I go to the notification center and tell Windows 10 that this is a tablet and still same thing.

    I really thought that Windows 10 would now know that this is a tablet even when in desktop mode and auto popup the virtual keyboard if no hardware keyboard was found. Is this a feature that will never come?

    Next when I am in FF and go to search bar, I type in something and hit enter on the keyboard I go back to the Metro UI screen for some reason. FF is still open but I can't search as keeps going back the Metro UI.

    Finally. I had some like office 360(what I had yet to register) and it's go after the upgrade, same with the Facebook app and stuff. Was surprised that they did not get carried over in the upgrade.

    I tried it, last night, on my i3 Pro 3 and lasted 20 minutes. For the desktop I'll be all over Windows 10 but tablet mode... Words fail me.

    When the modern UI's in focus all I wanted to do was go to the desktop but, after trying to add 'Desktop' to the tiles I gave up. I'll give Windows 10 a bit more time, via VM, over the coming weeks but as it stands I'll be sticking to Windows 8.1 on my tablet (Unless MS improves things)

    With 10130 ( or 10136) due any day now, I'm sticking with 10074 and not going back to Windows 8.1. I only use a few programs on my S3 and they run just fine. Can only imigine how much better 10130/36 is going to be!

    I had several builds and after 10130 I went back to 8.1, it was the worse one yet on my SP3. Waiting for the next build to try again. Win10 is going to be a game changer.

    I'm not totally sold on the tablet experience with Win 10. I have quite a few surfaces sitting around the house and Win 10 feels like a step back from 8.1. Too much having to press buttons to access things. The swipe right is definitely a step back. Bring back the 8.1 app switcher or use swipe right to access the hamburger menu.

    I definitely have avoided putting Windows 10 on my Surface 3. For one, I have no problems with Windows 8.1 so that's probably the main reason another is as I get older I find myself to not like beta testing like I use to.

    I'm sure it'll be great when it's released and that's when I'll download it.

    This is where I am too. Not sure what I want to do yet. Waiting to see more feedback.

    Hi bells0. Just thought I would update. I took the dive in yesterday and so far I am not regretting it. Sure, there are still quite a few odd little bugs that could potentially be annoying, but UI wise I am pretty pleased. Game streaming is awesome!

    I am sure the little bugs will get squashed over the coming weeks, so...at this point in time, I do not regret my decision.
