I have Windows 10 ISOs from the first wave and never installed it - not ready to "kill" my main laptop. Could have installed on a VM but it's not really the same.

I am thinking of perhaps installing my ASUS VivoTab (Intel Atom tablet). Current Os is Windows 8.1 Update. Anyone tried on a pure tablet and sees it working ok?

May I suggest waiting till after the next build comes out? Should be by the end of the week. It will have a lot of new features in it and hopefully won't be as much of a dog as the last official build released (not 9901).

If you have a touch PC

 

Technical Preview works with touch, but some things will be rough and unfinished. More touch-friendly improvements are on the way.

Windows 10 Tech Preview is performing better for me than Windows 7.

For touch/tablet yes wait so you can get Continuum

Speaking about the ASUS ViVoTab.. I hate how it doesn't charge while the screen is turned on..

Back on topic, I tried Windows 10 on the Lenovo X1 Carbon Touchscreen on VMWare, and yeah, it's not really the same as having it as the main OS. A bit slow, laggy etc.

Mine charges while sleeping, just that the screen is off. Plus since it runs outta battery quickly, it really is a PITA to have to stop what you're doing completely to charge it.

I got the Windows 10 Preview going on the HP Stream 7 tablet, unfortunately I had issues with getting the touch screen going.  From what I found other people had the same issues with the HP Stream 7.

I will give it another go when the new preview update is released.

Current preview is aimed at businesses wanting to try out traditional machines with mouse/keyboard :)

It seems to work ok on an Asus Transformerbook T300LA. Not quite polished, but functional for the most part.

Anyone know if there is a third party offering to give you a W10 Start Menu experience on earlier versions of Windows?

I'm mostly happy with windows 10 on my surface pro - the touch support is a little rough, but still fine for my usage. I do tend to use a keyboard with it a fair bit though. Still, I'm looking forward to the new release. 

Unrelated to touch, but the most annoying thing I've found is that the OneDrive setup keeps popping up (every restart and occassionally when I start explorer) but crashing when I try to complete it.  I've found numerous reports of people with similar issues, and a number of suggestions for fixes, but no luck yet.
