Microsoft will not release the Windows 10X operating system. This is evident from a short passage from an official blog post of the company. Microsoft says it will integrate the features of Windows 10X into new versions of Windows 10.
“After focusing for a year on the relationship with our customers, we recognized that Windows 10X technology should not be limited to a small number of users,” said Microsoft in its blog post explaining how the software company explains its May update. Windows 10, version 21H1 is available for download.
“Rather than launching a product called Windows 10X in 2021, we are choosing to integrate some key components of Windows 10X more quickly into other parts of Windows and other products,” he said. According to Microsoft, this is already happening. The company refers to the app containertechnology built into Microsoft Defender Application Guard and Voice Typing.
At the beginning of this month there were already rumors that Microsoft had stopped developing Windows 10X. Petri journalist Brad Sams and Windows Central’s Zac Bowden came out with these claims. Windows 10X was announced in 2019 as a lightweight operating system for dual-screen devices such as the Surface Neo. In May 2020, it was announced that the operating system was only further developed for devices with a single screen.
