    Hi there
    Thanks

    Can't wait.

    BTW any implementation of INTEL's Wireless display -- I know it's hardware but will W10 support it. I'd love to use a wireless connection to an external monitor -- get rid of HDMI cables. Audio shouldn't be a problem - even FLAC uses minimal bandwidth compared to video.

    Cheers

    So true! I just can't wait to see what MS has for us to test and go from there.

    That's the problem with stupid code names.
    How do you top "Awesome"?

    "Heaps Mega-Awesome"?
