“Newly implemented support for running Win32 applications in a container”
Microsoft has (partially) unveiled a unique twist on its operating system that it has dubbed Windows 10X – designed to run on dual-screen devices.
Potentially confusingly, it appears that this won’t be used on the new Android-powered Microsoft Surface Duo – a twin-screen smartphone the company unveiled today, which that features two 5.6-inch screens
(Bloomberg has a good take on that and Microsoft’s unexpected dive back into the smartphone market – a move that’s drawn mixed reactions.)
Instead, Windows 10X – set to land in 2020 – will run on Microsoft Surface laptops and devices from OEM partners ASUS, Dell, HP and Lenovo.
“The first wave of devices will vary in size, design and specs, and be powered by Intel”, Microsoft said, in a consumer-focussed blog on the OS.
