Resume from sleep for me was entirely broken after the Anniversary update, massive BSOD every time when waking up my computer. It seems to be because of beta video drivers I had. Now that I'm running earlier WHQL version, it seems to be working properly now.

 

Edge with Adblock is quite nice. So far very good except Edge has some weird behaviour with tabs that when going through the tabs in a window suddenly one tab jumps out into a window by itself. And Adblock works better than Adblock Plus... except it has crashed atleast once for me.

 

Windows Maps being able to set a manual location to be used for all the geolocation is something I discovered and it's extremely useful. No longer does my computer think it's 1000km away in Helsinki because the ISP's endpoint for my connection is there. Now UWP/Metro apps see me at my exact address.

It took me 4 hours to install the update on my laptop, but that was on release day and perhaps the servers were overwhelmed. I only had issues with my graphics card driver, but after I updated that, no other problems  Oh yeah, Edge has froze a few times, usually when logging off websites that I have accounts with. I like the fact that adblock is available for edge also the mouse gestures extension is neat. There was an update last Tuesday (Aug 9) supposed to fix certain issues on some systems. 

 

MS updates are more vague than they were back in the day, now you just get told there is an update, usually when you are about to power down for the night :/

And just as I woke up today.... yet another hiccup when the main monitor didn't wake up and the mouse on my secondary monitor kept flickering because DWM was in a crash loop.

2/3 resumes worked fine... :/

I feel compelled to share with all the improvement in performance and stability I have experienced over the past couple of days after installing Visual Studio 2017 AND Wndows 10 Software Developer Kit. Although they are apps way above my head at this time, just the installation has provided a more stable and trouble free environment when working in paint. Little known issues have seem to have disappeared. For example; the screen jittering when working on large images (4K X 4K).

Overall I would estimate a 10% performance increase for Win 10 creators edition update.
