Microsoft Windows 10X has been in the news for quite some time since Microsoft first announced it in the fall of 2019. Originally scheduled to launch commercially in 2020, the operating system was delayed. According to a new report, Windows 10X has now lagged yet again.
A new report from Windows Central suggests that Microsoft could release a public version of Windows 10X in the second half of 2021. Originally designed for foldable systems, Microsoft later decided to design Windows 10X for single-screen PCs as well.
Why Your PC Is Probably Not Getting Windows 10X So Soon
The report suggests that Microsoft is targeting low-cost business and educational customers, and “will not really focus on consumer devices.” Microsoft is reportedly preparing a major update called Sun Valley that is being designed to revamp Windows 10 and make it look more modern.
Not compatible with Win32 application
Microsoft does not plan to add local Win32 application support for Windows 10X, at least at launch. The report suggests that the company prioritizes the deployment of Windows Virtual Desktop and Cloud PC as streaming solutions.
Windows 10X could possibly launch in conjunction with the start of the new academic year. However, this is just speculation and there is no confirmation on this yet. However, considering that Microsoft is targeting low-cost educational customers, this timeline seems likely.
