    Heya,
    I went back to buy a VivoTab Note 8 and damn Windows 8.1 feels so good and smooth on it. So I was wondering what you guys are using on your 8'' Windows Tablet? Is there anyone still using 8.1 or is there some specific reason why Windows 10 is better on it?

    That category of Windows devices belong to the museums now, and that's quite unfortunate. The 9"x2 Neo would have been the closest thing to it

    Mine still running well on Windows 10 2004. For a five-year old device, I really have no complains.

    I prefer Win 8.1 with Start Menu X

    Can I ask where you bought the VivoTab Note 8? I've been looking everywhere and I can't find a single one for sale. Was yours a one-off purchase on eBay or something?

    I bought a used one on eBay. It was pretty cheap because it was sold as "broken", but after reinstalling everything it seems fine to me :)

    I'm thinking of trying a AVTN8 on 8.1 again. I'm wondering if there are other Windows 8.1 tablet users still out there.

    So I picked up my AVTN8 via EBay. I'm trying to use it with Win 10 and it's sure not ideal. I'm thinking about switching over to 8.1, but not sure if it's worth the trouble.

    Well M$ will stop OneDrive from syncing on 8.1 in a couple months, so that eliminates 8.1 for me. This peeves me, but waddayagonnado.
