Microsoft has a warning to all those new Surface 3 owners who might want to download and install the Windows 10 Insider Preview on the 10.8-inch tablet: don't do it yet.
Microsoft Community Moderator Barb Bowman posted word on the Microsoft Community support forums on the reason for this call:
"Please do NOT try to install Windows 10 on the new Surface 3. There are no drivers for the Intel x5/x7 Atom processors. There are no drivers in the Preview Build because Intel has not yet provided drivers. There is no block/check for these processors in current builds. Timing of availability for drivers is unknown as Intel is still working on the needed drivers for the new chipset and processors."
Since Windows 10 itself is still heavily in development, we can expect issues like this to occur before it reaches its RTM status. Hopefully, Surface 3 owners will get the go-ahead to install Windows 10 before it reaches that point.
With recent reports revealing that Microsoft has put Windows 10X on the backburner, the question around what the future looks like for Windows is more apparent than ever. Windows 10X was supposed to lay the foundation for the next generation of Windows, but with that no longer happening, where does that leave Windows as a whole?
Mass Effect 3 had a multiplayer mode, tangential to the main story and tacked on thanks to a corporate mandate. It was still great fun to play, and I'm going to miss it when the Legendary Edition launches without it.
