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

Windows Core OS (WCOS) is part of the foundation of Windows10X. 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, it has no limitations of Windows 10 itself, and it is essentially a continuation of the architectural 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. Microsoft said that Windows 10X is only suitable for dual screen and folding computers, while the existing Windows 10 computers will not upgrade to Windows10X. 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 on dual-screen and foldable devices in the autumn of 2020. These devices will include Microsoft Surface, as well as multiple Windows ecosystem partners such as ASUS, Dell, HP and Lenovo. The first wave devices will be different in size, design and specifications, and will be driven by Intel.
