    Has anyone started using W10 on the AVTN 8? Any issues? I am concerned about drivers unique to our devices.

    It confirms my suspicion: the taskbar. Always visible. And the title bar. Always visible. A waste of screen real estate on smaller tablets. It was one change I really hated when I went from Android 2.3 to 3.1 as well.

    I don't know about the title bar, but the taskbar can be set to disappear unless brought up by the pen or touch when needed.

    Yes, that function has been in Windows for ages. And I don't like it. I just don't want to see it when I'm using some applications (such as my browser) and I do want to see it when I use others (such as my browser + html editor). That's why I liked the metro interface on my tablet, I could use one browser for browsing (full screen) and the other for developing (the "default" browser).

    So i have to correct my self. If you hide the Taskbar in Desktop-mode, the Taskbar will hide when you open a app like Mail

    Just upgraded mine to 10. First issue I noticed was camera(s) were not working. Keeps saying they are in use.

    Even in Chrome when I go to appear.in, it doesn't detect any camera installed.

    i'm also conidering to upgrade my device...
    may i ask you how many gigs the installation eventually takes after finishing the upgrade and all critial-updates?
    does windows 10 take more space than it was in the original windows 8.1 installation?
    (i got the 32gb vivotab note 8...)
