Windows 10X

Indeed, Windows 10X is Microsoft's latest "Lite" operating system for dual screen design. It is the official name of Windows Lite/Santorini, which modularized the different components of the operating system based on Windows Core OS. We try to standardize a set of core components in Windows so that they can work on different types of devices.

Panos Panay, Microsoft hardware director, used the word "expression" to describe 10X at the event. The original text is "it."

What is the connection between Windows 10X and Windows Core OS?

Windows Core OS (WCOS) is part of the Windows 10X infrastructure. As shown below, WCOS is a combination of OneCore OS pieces, UWP/Web and Win 32 application packages, and C-Shell. These are the basic parts of Windows 10X. The design of Windows 10X is modern style. It does not have some limitations of Windows 10 itself. It is essentially a continuation of the architecture changes made to Windows 10. It will allow users to run any application they want, whether it's a Web application, a UWP application or a Win 32 application.


Ordinary PC will run all the services required by Win 32 application immediately when it starts up, while Windows 10X will not load this subsystem before it needs to, which makes it very efficient to utilize the resources available on the machine and significantly prolong battery life. According to Microsoft, Windows 10X is only suitable for dual-screen and foldable computers, while existing Windows 10 computers will not be upgraded to Windows 10X. Double screen devices are beneficial to people's work and life. For example, taking notes on the screen while viewing information on another screen.

Microsoft said that Windows 10X will be used in double screens and folding devices in the autumn of 2020. These devices will includeSurfaceAndASUS,Xie,XieAnd Lenovo's multiple Windows ecosystem partners'devices. The first wave of equipment will be different in size, design and specifications, and byIntelDrive.
