I've been using Safari for a while on my Mac but haven't found anything better than Firefox on Windows as of yet. I could see myself switching to Edge if they get some key extensions working.

Really liking Microsoft's marketing later, particularly the ninja cat mascot

Finally made the switch at the weekend. All seemed to go pretty smoothly, and at first glance the OS does seem much faster than Windows 7 did.

Only downside is, it has de-registered my hooky copy of Office 2010 and I can't find the disk to attempt to re-register it. :(

Was going to buy Lightroom 6 but might have to spend that on Office now instead.

If your company is in the Home Use Programme you can get Office 2016 for a tenner at the mo.

Lapability is ok if you're a kitten, discussing the texture of milk.

Is there an overall windows thread on here or is this it. If not then i'll post this here but recently i bought a Linx 10 tablet which has windows 8.1 full on it. Not the cut down one but a full on version of windows, the tablet comes with 2gb ram a quadcore processor and the usual built in Intel HD graphics. It's nothing over the top or insanely powerful but they do go for 150 quid from sainsburys and ebuyer and because i had 50 quids worth of nectar voucher points i picked one up after playing around with it and it's a brilliant piece of kit. It comes with 32gb hard drive but it has an expansion slot which can handle 132gb sd card, it has a mini hdmi out port and a mini usb port (the device also comes with the adapter. On top of that it also has bluetooth built in , overall it's a great piece of hardware and runs windows 8.1 flawlessly.

Anyway if anyone was interested in one of these , has any questions or wants some pics i'm more than happy to help.

Not upgraded to Windows 10 yet? It's a much more consistent tablet/touch experience than 8.1.

nope, i have heard and read that there are a few bugs and glitches on the linx 10 so i'm waiting till all that is sorted out first. I have windows 10 on my pc though and other than a few little weird issues it's very good.

So now Microsoft now have two devices that both absolutely slaughter iPad Pro and Macbook Pro.

I think they mention that Surface Pro was 50% more powerful than Macbook Pro, and Surface Book was 2x more powerful.
