    Build 10162 PRO X-64 GB version

    Hi there

    Done as much testing as I can with this build -- fairly exhaustive.

    Bugs -- IE11 gives random strange errors if you log in with Ms account.

    Networking shares still hosed if you login with an Ms account (works 100% if you login with a LOCAL account).
    This could be because I've set up the shares incorrectly - but if I'm a bog standard user going through an automatic update this stuff has to work seamlessly. I STILL can't get shares to work properly from an Ms account.

    Auto hide taskbar doesn't work (sometimes) -- difficult to re-produce but it seems to just suddenly stop working - needs re-boot to fix.

    Office 2016 preview needs re-activation -- not a mega bug but a bug.

    If you look for updates you get the stupid message about you need to sign in with an Ms account. THis might be fine if you want the next insider builds but if you just want "standard updates" it's annoying.

    Not bugs but IRRITANTS - Ms account login leaves email address on login / lock screen. BAD SECURITY if in a place with other users.

    Edge -- can't use LOCALHOST type IP addresses so my media / net servers which have a web interface as control panel need another browser (IE or FFF or whatever).

    Remarks -- all other apps working just fine. even old things like WINAMP. !! Complex stuff works fine too --VMware workstation, Photoshop etc. Mezzmo and Logitech media servers working fine.

    Touch seems OK too on touch enabled laptop.

    So reasonably impressed.

    (No Language Interface packs yet for some languages that were available in W8.1).

    Any more new builds coming !!!!!!

    Now I'm starting my weekend -- off to the "Boozer" for a few jars. !!

    Having the same problem with networking. Shares come and go when I login with a MS account, rock solid when I use a local account.

    Still not a fan of Edge, customization is poor. Even setting a home page is much harder that it should be since they removed the Use current button.

    If MS can fix the networking problems this build is good enough for RTM (for me at least), though
    I am seeing a lot of posts about people having other network connectivity problems though, especially wireless but even Ethernet.

    Ditto here. With all the hoopla about Spartan/Edge I had expected a more polished product. My feedback concerning Edge:
    Cannot recommend it to others at this time.
