Certainly not praise for Windows 10, which has proved to be a significant step backwards from Windows 7 on my PC: slower boot time, odd incompatibilities, and, worst of all, mysterious and annoying random freezes for about 1 minute). But praise for the Surface 3 which I received as an unexpected Christmas pressie. I’ve had an Android tablet for a couple of years, and it’s been a great experience and release from the Apple prison, and I could never imagine myself using any other platform for phone and tablet. So I did have some misgivings about having to adapt to using the Surface 3, and the interface is far from ideal, but the display is excellent, and it’s taking over as my main tablet for most of the things I want a tablet for: browsing (Firefox, not Edge), e-book reading, Kodi, live footie streaming (*cough*), and Memory Map. I can’t even be that bothered about turning off all Microsoft’s spying: if they really want to know about every time and place that I pick my nose or scratch my arse, they’re welcome.
