Presented with great fanfare with the Surface Neo and Duo, Windows 10X seems to have already been retired.
In the fall of 2019, Microsoft made the headlines of the tech news by announcing in quick succession a new version of its operating system for folding or dual-screen devices, Windows 10X, but also a first device with two screens, the Surface Neo, as well as Surface Duo, a strange smartphone also equipped with a dual display. If the latter has clearly not won unanimous support from the specialized press, the Surface Neo and Windows 10X have simply disappeared from the radar… until now.
It’s been a while since we’ve heard of Windows 10X, and for good reason. According to site information petri.com, Microsoft would have decided to postpone the development of Windows 10X indefinitely, while the firm has discreetly erased all references to its Surface Neo, the first device that should have been equipped with it.
If the Redmond company decided to put this operating system dedicated to devices with folding screens or two screens on hiatus, it would be to focus on Windows 10, and in particular its major update to come, Sun Valley, which should land at the start of the school year. In addition, some of the new features planned for Windows 10X will be included in this future update of Windows 10.
Windows 10X is not officially canceled, but according to petri.com, there is a good chance that it will never see the light of day. It will therefore very likely join the list of Microsoft’s mixed attempts in this area, such as Windows RT, an OS derived from Windows 8 which has only had two years of existence, or Windows 10 S, which already seems to be on the way. garage.
