Finally got time to update my Stream8 last night, so far so good, what does amaze me is how different the user experience is on a 8in tablet vs 23" desktop. I don't mean this in a bad way either, quite the opposite, while the layout  is completely familiar (have been running my desktop on W10 preview for months) I find instinctively I use the tablet in tablet mode for virtually everything without the compromise or flip mode feel of 8.1. On 8.1 i spent more time struggling in desktop mode than metro

So far so good, but the little 1gb ram atom is running quite satisfactorily on W10 with no drama

My Atom [N550 dual core 1.5Ghz] with 2GB RAM runs well too with Win10, my idle RAM use is 1GB so I presume yours is paging a lot ?

Completed the upgrade on 1 desktop gaming machine, no problems.  And two laptops, no issues that it noticed. 
Was a bit mystified as to where Ms Security Essentials has gone to, so I tried to reinstall it and Windows told me not to bother as it had an up-to-date windows defender installed which would take care of things????  Not sure on this?  Will see how things go over the next few weeks.  Was thinking of doing a clean install on my main desktop pc but might give that a miss.

Windows tunes itself differently in a 1Gb machine, so you can't really compare a 1Gb and a 2Gb machine like this

Still having problems with Win 10. The latest is that I now get Chrome Aw Snap errors when trying to save web pages as pdf files from my Chrome Sllimjet browser. I don't know if the fault is with Windows or Slimjet but this always worked perfectly under 8.1 and now it doesn't. I did not install the preview version because I did not want to be a beta tester. This is supposed to be a release version but I am still encountering beta-type issues that shouldn't be there. I don't want to have to hack things any more. This still feels experimental but I want it to just work so I can get on with the things I need to do.

I have experienced a few issues with Chrome in general, its scrolling in W10 is not flash and I have seen some font rendering issues. It also gobbles RAM  so I  have stopped using it. I have Edge as default and use Firefox as alternative.

networkn: Right now I am feeling serious rage. I cannot get Windows 10 to stop hijacking my default video player choice. I am not kidding, if I leave the machine alone for a while, when I come back, the defaults I have specifically set are reset and it's using the inbuilt player, which has an ANNOYING lag. I keep going into the default apps and setting it to VLC, but after a while it's back.




I set GOM as my default video player in Win 10 and pretty sure it has stayed there. Have not used it much but will check again tonight.

Do you find Edge slows down a bit after awhile?

One very minor issue i have not yet worked out yet is deleting the old windows files, I only have one user set up (as administrator) but it will not let me delete the folder without administrator rights or something to that effect, it's not affecting my W10 experience but it is 10GB of my 32GB I would rather have spare to do with as i please

Does anyone know of any programs/extensions etc that might be able to synchronize Edge and Chrome bookmarks? I have imported Chrome into Edge but would be nice to not have to delete and re-import every time to update

Run the disk clean up tool on that drive and select the advanced options - there should be an option there to remove *old windows* installations.

Not so much slows but I have the occasional incident where it will be unresponsive for a few seconds eg moving between tabs the tab wont respond to clicks for a second or two sometimes up to about 10 seconds.

I like it in general except on boot it takes around 2 - 5 minutes before it presents the sign in window.
