    Hi all, I have my x64 pc needs met and ARM with an M1 MBA. I dove into the W10 on ARM with the Samsung Galaxy Book Go. Yes it’s only 4GB of RAM but the battery?! Holy crap. I watched YouTube and Disney plus for over 8 hours on a single charge. Outside of installing updates and other random testing.

    What I’m here to inquire about are the best ARM64 apps. Apple Music doesn’t work in the web unless it’s the only thing open. Fine I can use phone for that.
    I don’t like the default email client on Windows 10. MailSpring sucks as you can sort your emails.
    LibreOffice and the office web apps are fantastic granted Libre is 32-bit x86 emulation.

    Any suggestions for email clients?
    Firefox ARM crashes a lot so I’ll stick with Edge for now. Don’t like Chrome.
    PWAs have been good. - Disney+ for example
    VSCode works decent - npm and nodejs work fine for React and Svelte.
    VS Studio won’t debug but the designers do work.
    Haven’t tried games yet.
    Anything you guys want me to try specifically?

    A few caveats I've noticed so far:
    1) There's no way to get an official ARM64 ISO for Windows 10. So reinstalling on the system isn't possible currently. However, other options would be to do a full backup and restore.
    2) One update fails to install, but many others are having the same issue.
    3) The Windows Store is still a mess. Its hard to find apps and is saturated with the same issues we've seen on Android. Copies, pay for a web link, etc.
    4) Office is usable, however, your memory may hit maximum pretty quick. I don't have any other items starting up. Just Edge open and I sit around 85% memory usage. It is still attempting to install updates that fail, over and over and over again.
    5) Steam, so far, has opened, time to try installing some games.
