It is said that Microsoft has decided to postpone Windows 10X indefinitely and maybe even shelved the operating system.
It turned out that a decision to postpone indefinitely for the new generation operating system Windows 10X, which is expected to be presented as a Chrome OS competitor by Microsoft. Microsoft first showed off Windows 10X in 2019, along with Surface Neo and Surface Duo. While the Surface Duo powered by Android was launched, the Neo was delayed and redesigned for Windows 10X single-screen devices. Even a supposed near-finished build of the operating system has been leaked, and it is said that Microsoft is preparing to launch the platform this spring. Then the timeline for the operating system changed once in the fall of this year.
Petri reports that these plans have changed because Windows 10X is now in the background, according to the information he received from those who know the subject. It is stated that the company transferred its resources to Windows 10, which is expected to receive a major update codenamed Sun Valley later this year. There is no concrete information about whether or when Windows 10X will see daylight.
It is shared that Microsoft made such a decision because the timing and market conditions were not correct and the feedback from users was not as positive as expected. The downside was that the operating system lacked support for traditional Win32 applications. Additionally, it is stated that the company’s executives feel that Windows 10X is not providing the solutions that their customers want.
It is unclear whether the company will announce its plans for Windows 10, including visual overhaul and new Microsoft Store policies, at the Build conference later this month. It is also expected that Microsoft will make official announcements about the fate of Windows 10X.
