Microsoft Reportedly Puts Windows 10X Chrome OS Competitor On Ice
Since at least 2019, we have been hearing about a Windows 10 branch called Windows 10X, which was to be used for dual for folding display devices. After that, leaks and snippets of information came out until 2020, where Microsoft went rather quiet about the entire project when it was supposed to be launching. It is unknown whether the project was canned last year, but Microsoft has struggled to see where Windows 10X would fit in anyhow after switching gears from primarily supporting dual or folding display devices to more traditional laptops.
Later this year, Microsoft is slated to roll out a refreshed or “new” Windows edition with a rejuvenated user interface. Evidently, some of the interface elements within the Sun Valley update are shared with Windows 10X, according to leaks. Perhaps we could also see some features come over from 10X, which would put Windows 10 in a pretty good spot. Whatever the case may be, Microsoft keeps changing plans, and no one knows what will happen, so keep an eye on HotHardware for updates on Windows 10 and seemingly shelved Windows 10X.
