Microsoft has announced that it will not release a lightweight and simplified operating system called the Windows 10X as promised before. This was only planned as a competition against the Chrome OS. The Windows 10X operating system was predicted to arrive with new two-screen devices like the Surface Neo before the Covid-19 Pandemic.
The head of Windows servicing and delivery, John Cable, in a post on Tuesday declared – “Instead of bringing a product called Windows 10X to market in 2021 like we originally intended, we are leveraging learnings from our journey thus far and accelerating the integration of key foundational 10X technology into other parts of Windows and products at the company.”
In simple, Microsoft told that its teams would continue to invest their capital and time in the areas where the 10X technology will help fulfil the needs of its consumer. Along with judging the technological circumstances and software and hardware that will be beneficial to its customers in the upcoming years.
The company has already begun executing a little bit of the Microsoft Windows 10X OS features inside its previous blueprints of Windows 10. These features contain the new app holder technology in Microsoft Defender Application, an upgraded Voice Typing experience, an improvised touch keyboard.
After the company has declared the postponement of Windows 10X, we predict that it might have suspended the two-screen Surface Neo too. But, with improvements in Windows 10, we could get a much more improved Surface Neo in the upcoming years, running the full Windows 10 operating system.
