Creators Update has all the problems you’ve come to expect from Windows 10 version upgrades — freezes, rollbacks, wonky user interface elements and the like. There are good general lists on WindowsReport and DigitalTrends and plenty of ancillary material here in the Lounge comments (link above). Also check my Windows 10 install problems — and how to solve them.
I’m particularly looking for bugs that are a bit meatier.
As you hit bugs, please post them on the AskWoody Lounge (link above). I’ll give them a quick once-over and promote the best ones to the main blog.
Creators Update breaks Logitech BRIO camera (the one that’s supposed to support Windows Hello). Fix on Logitech web site.

Driver incompatibilities: older NVIDIA, new NVIDIA driver 381.65 is buggy, so use 378.92. DTS encoding on Realtek. Wi-Fi drivers on Dell Inspiron 640m, Lenovo t500.
