Take a look at the new Windows 10X! - will run on the Surface Neo

Take a look at the new Windows 10X! - will run on the Surface Neo


Microsoft has officially announced the Windows 10X which is specifically for dual-screen devices. It can seamlessly let you move your keyboard around on top of its glass and reflow apps around it to let you keep on working. Will it run on a traditional Windows desktop software and not restricted to apps from the Windows store? That is some of the limitations with Windows 10 S at the moment and looks like the company will be dodging them.

Microsoft says it will support Office and other apps, but we need more details than that. We’re only getting the barest look at Windows 10X right now it appears, as the presentation has already moved on, but Microsoft says it’s coming holiday 2020 alongside the Surface Neo. But this stripped-down version of Windows is designed for a distinct new wave of devices where its capabilities may be necessary — devices like the just-announced dual-screen Surface Neo and upcoming devices from Asus, Dell, HP, and Lenovo as well.
Windows 10X will provide a  distinct experience. In fact, it may be exclusively for those sorts of devices. “Windows 10X is the best of Windows 10 built to enable unique experiences on multi-posture dual-screen PCs,” is the company’s one-line pitch in its latest blog post. But surprisingly, Microsoft’s dual-screen devices won’t be exclusive to Windows 10X: Microsoft’s surprise Surface Duo phone runs Android instead.  It also has a new Start Menu, that gives you a list of apps, documents and files for easy access. In short, it will mimic how smartphones and tablets work today. Follow the main highlights here.
