Windows 10 Preview :: Learn from my mistakes

I love the Surface 3. I just do. And now I have a fresh Windows install. Squeaky clean. And it's my fault.

I was contemplating an upgrade to Windows 10 Preview. After all, this is a Microsoft device, right? Well, that was a bad mistake. Although I had installed all previous updates and drivers, things did not work out so well. And I was finally stuck. Lots of things would no longer work. Things as easy as Windows Update or screen rotation for instance. Or pressing the button on Surface Pen to take notes in OneNote.

Everything I like about Surface was gone. So Windows 10 Preview had to go. I test stuff so you don't have to. Learn from my mistakes. Stay away, until Microsoft goes into beta. This isn't beta. This is a marketing stunt.

I understand Microsoft wants to ship in five weeks. I'm not sure I want to sail this boat.

I have neither a Surface 3 nor a Surface Pro 3 so i don't have any hands-on experience with this. Did they enhance the Windows 10 preview or make available Windows 10 drivers for the Surface 3 since early May
( http://uk.businessinsider.com/windows-10-preview-not-ok-for-surface-3-2015-5?r=US ) or did you just want to give it a try and see how it goes?

Yes, they have. Lots of things happened in this space since early May. New builds, new drivers.
