    I've recently read some articles by people I trust complaining of growing issues with Windows 10. Are any of you having similar problems?

    Windows 10 glitches have sidelined my Surface 3
    By James Kendrick

    The Surface 3 is a fantastic piece of hardware that is a joy to use. Whether using it as a tablet or a laptop with the Type Cover, operation is fluid and intuitive -- until Windows 10 steps in and ruins the user experience.

    My biggest problem with Windows 10: Instability
    By Mary Jo Foley

    Windows 10's strength -- its comprehensiveness -- is also its biggest weakness. Too many moving parts are making for an unstable computing experience for me.

    Boy, what a damning conclusion from Mary Jo Foley:

    I'm hoping time and some of these ongoing Cumulative Updates will bring more stability to Windows 10 in the coming months. While I wait for this, I'll keep using Windows 10 on my laptop and hope for better stability. But I'm definitely also not going to be moving my main work machine off Windows 7 in the interim.
    Ouch. Hopefully, Microsoft takes notice . . . .

    Edge on my desktop PC (an Intel Core + AMD GPU) is a disaster. Constantly hangs. I've gone back to IE11 until it gets sorted.

    I have W10 on 6 diff. machines, from Dell tablet, Thinkpad and Acer NB, a DIY J1900 and 2 Lenovo Q190 ( as HTPC).
    Half of them are on the fast ring and as a SW developer I am constantly installing and deinstalling sw.
    Every single one of them has no Problems.
    They were all upgraded without new installations.

    I can't understand how someone that is as resource full as those two have so many problems.
    Maybe Apple pays more for reviews.

    I think Mary-Jo Foley's article says it best. This is an OS that was planned for release in October that was pushed out early to appease OEMs. Hopefully some of the updates in the next few months help (though I haven't seen much improvement in the post-launch insider updates that I've tried on a spare PC), because issues are far too common in both the built-in apps and the OS itself... not to mention the functionality that still isn't there yet.

    Seems like there was still around 10% beta left in the code and that is getting hammered out right now.

    I certainly saw a lot of issues during the beta process, but so far I haven't encountered any issues on the dozen or so installs I've performed since (knock wood).

    I appreciate Mary Jo's point of representing the least technical user's Windows 10 experience, but it's odd to me that someone who doesn't seem to like or use technology very much has managed to make a living as a tech journalist.

    I think she was trying to view it from a non-techie viewpoint rather than her own.

    If you listen to her Windows Weekly podcast, she freely admits to being low-tech. Her word processor is Notepad.
