    I note that review says that Edge is "simple, fast and reliable". Well, the "simple" bit I agree with, but on my systems Edge is far from fast and reliable. It hangs far too frequently for my liking, and it's slow on these forums in particular...

    Has the Handwriting Panel changed? Is it still limited to 2 lines? Can it be resized and moved around?

    In Win7, I used to handwrite a lot! Since Win8, quite rarely....

    Yes. No, it's now limited to one line. Moved yes, resized no.

    As long as you have it set to floating, it does pop up automatically near your hand when you tap on a text field. However, the actual input method is terrible now. Unlike in 7 and 8 (and previous) where it converts to text in the panel and lets you perform the gestures to correct, you write a word now and it gives you a handful of autocorrect suggestions... which to me, in practice means that I am writing a single word, then tapping on it, then writing another word, then tapping on it, and so on and so forth. Completely unnatural and a huge step in the wrong direction.
