Microsoft: Windows 10X would be finalized for the month of December

Windows 10X could be offered to computer manufacturers in December, to compete with Chrome OS.

Microsoft appears to have fixed the issues with its new Windows 10X operating system. According to our colleagues at Windows Latest, the OS is in the home stretch and should move to RTM (release to manufacturer) status in December. This status indicates that the software is finalized and can be offered to computer manufacturers. But Microsoft has not said whether it will be possible to test it, as with major Windows 10 updates.

Windows 10X was originally intended for machines with two screens, for example the future Surface Neo. But Microsoft has completely changed course. Windows 10X is now positioned as a stripped-down version of Windows 10 aimed at single-screen machines. It thus becomes a competitor of Google’s Chrome OS.

Microsoft would have abandoned for the moment the support of native Win32 applications thanks to a technology of virtualization in the OS. Which means that Windows 10X will only accept PWA and UWP apps.

Windows 10X will therefore be supplied with the web versions of the Office suite programs: Word, Excel and PowerPoint. For Win32 applications, it will be necessary to wait until 2022, which also represents the theoretical year of the launch of Microsoft’s Surface Neo.
