    Honestly, I find that that video Zac did only covers the most (ahem :vboops:) surface-level issues with W10 tablet mode. Yeah, there's some things he went into mostly about fluidity, but I wish he did a deeper dive of some of the functionality-level changes for the worse.

    ...That being said, I gave in pretty fast on the upgrade from W8.1 to W10 despite my initial misgivings, mostly for USB-C, which isn't fully supported on earlier devices. :D Also, most of the non-tablet functionality about W10 is drastically better. It's just a shame that nobody working on W10 really understood what was great about W8.x on tablets because there really was promise at one point that W10 could've been the best of both worlds... but it's fairly clear that Microsoft is only interested in lip service on this front. At this point, I guess it's just a matter of waiting and hoping for the so-called "Cshell" to actually spend some effort on a good tablet experience.

    Thank you! That is an excellent review. I am not an artist, however you did touch on inking and on tablet only mode. Question: Do you think the first generation Surface Pen (256 levels) from the Surface 3 will suffices for inking as it does not have the fancy tech the newer Pen has?

    My Surface 3 is in S Mode so this paragraph is very much appreciated, so thank you.

    "While living in S, I also tried to use the Go in tablet mode, sans keyboard. The touch keyboard has improved dramatically over the years and touch response on the Go is perfect. Setting up my full screen start menu full of colorful live tiles got me very nostalgic for the pleasures of Windows 8.x on tablets. It’s too bad Microsoft abandoned horizontal navigation and side swipes in Windows 10. But the new tablet mode has improved too and I could also see myself using it more often now that I’ve rediscovered it"

    Lastly, you nailed this:

    "Along with the full Office suite, several PDF readers, music, film and tv players, I could imagine living securely and comfortably in S Mode. If you buy a Go and don’t need to run Adobe software or Clip Studio, resist the urge to migrate just for the sake of Chrome. The Edge browser has come a long way. Give it a chance before you set it aside"

    You described me 100%. Excellent review! Bravo!
