Windows system in more than 30 years of version change, continue to meet the needs of enterprises and users, which led to the system becomes very bloated. Last month, there was news that Microsoft was planning a game called "Andromeda" OS & Foundation.

Invoking Windows Central from the inside of the news, Andromeda OS will become the mainstay of Windows, and further Windows 10 system to create a common operating system. In a nutshell, the Andromeda OS is a versatile platform that enables cross-platform, running on any device type or architecture, and provides device functionality and operational experience with enhanced modularization.

For the average user, the ultimate goal of the operating system is to make Windows 10 system more flexible, allowing a variety of devices to install. The result is that the Windows system itself can be smaller according to the type of equipment, the system speed is further accelerated, the device can be selected according to the needs of components and functions, thereby enhancing the overall performance of the device.

So what does this mean for the average consumer?

Windows 10 now has a small number of derivative versions, but Windows 10 Mobile and Windows 10 Desktop Edition are two different derivative versions. These different derivative versions share common elements, such as OneCore and UWP, but the system itself is not the same.

And Andromeda OS is to remove the differences between these versions, the future running on the phone side WIndows system, is no longer used now Windows 10 Mobile, but simply use multiple components containing "Windows 10 & rdquo ;. This is a modular Windows system.


In fact, this and the current Windows 10 Mobile system itself is similar to the way. Windows 10 Mobile provides OEMs with a separate installation package that allows hardware vendors to flexibly select the required system features and features (such as Continuum). Andromeda OS further deepens this idea.

The future of Windows systems

Andromeda OS and CShell in the next decade will be fully integrated into the Windows system infrastructure. In order to meet the future of new equipment, Microsoft needs a flexible, configurable operating system, and obviously the current Windows system does not meet the needs.


At present we already know that Microsoft is planning a new mobile hardware device, which foreign media speculation may be introduced next year, the system's new hardware devices. It is worth mentioning that, Andromeda OS is not for ordinary consumers, this is a Windows system to more flexible internal platform, allowing Microsoft and hardware manufacturers to build an unprecedented Windows 10 system.
