    Thanks for the info! I'll just wait, though. I'm not using the tablet much right now and I already have Windows 10 on my PC and Laptop to play around with.

    W10 is running perfectly this side. My search (next to start) was working fine but now it can't find a thing. Any ideas?

    Do you guys mind posting your 3dMark API scores for W10?

    Edit* Fixed search bug. Just logged into local account and all is well.

    I used official drivers of AMDs site.
    They have a 15.7 build for W10.

    It seems they have updated the MSN servers to work properly with Windows 10 and 2-step verification. I just logged into my MSN account, hit approve on my phone and it logged in.

    You can kill off the WU service to not receive anything at all or just disable WU from installing device drivers by opting out of receiving them.

    Code:
    System -> Advanced system settings -> Hardware -> Device Installation Settings
    Not sure if Microsoft has it working yet but I haven't received a single driver through WU since the 10240 upgrade.

    That is was. It's nice that they fixed it quickly as now I don't have to change my xbox live and outlook accounts to login properly.

    Yea, that would have been a pain indeed, luckily I only had to disable 2step temporarily to log in to Win 10, then enabled it again, no damage done

    Are you guys experiencing lag/stutter in GTA V with W10?
    Had no issues in W8.1.

    - Style has been reinvigorated for Windows 10
    - Reimplented Modern apps uninstallation.
    NOTE: It's possible to blow your leg off with it and even uninstall Store. Handle with care!
    - Tweaks and changes to default settings

    Notable fixes:
    - System transparency setting is now honored
    - Improved RTM compatibility

    The move over to Windows 10 would not have been this easy without "Startisback++"

    Agreed, haven't got the patience to mess about with that XAML thing

    Shame SiB can't replace the rest of the ported UI too

    If it wasn't for DX12, Id be sticking to 8.1, but then, they already knew that

    Never even moved over to 8 or 8.1, I was still running Windows 7. The UI is something to get use to, but it's forgivable once you get to grips with it.

    That aside, I'm very happy to keep it on my system as a main OS..

    I got bored and installed 10240 over mine existing Win 8.1. It shows as activated at least. So is this still a preview build then?

    *Edit, reverted back to Win 8.1 :)

    Startisback is a godsend. Goodbye "apps", goodbye "Store". Sayonara. :D

    Thank you for the heads up!

    I can only agree with you.
    I'm on the same boat.
    But, to be completely honest, the Start menu from W10 is not as horrendous (TO ME) as the Start screen from W8/8.1.

    StartIsBack is a god send, man.
