Windows 10 UI update

It seems that Microsoft hasn’t given up on the idea of a
unified Windows 10 experience and the company is still actively
testing Windows Core OS for upcoming devices. If you’ve had any
doubts about the existence of Windows Core OS, doubts can be
settled as Microsoft has accidentally leaked new details of the
unannounced operating system.

Windows Core OS is the leaner version of Windows that’s mean to
be used in the Surface Neo as Windows 10X, Surface Hub 2,
HoloLens, and, of course, it was also supposed to power Surface
Phone ‘Andromeda’, but that changed later when Microsoft
officials dumped Windows for Android.

Unlike Windows 8, Windows Core OS is not touch-centric as it
has composers/adaptable shells for all form factors. The Core
OS is being developed with a radically different way of
interacting with computing devices such as desktops, laptops,
dual-screen devices, Surface Hub, and Hololens.

The development of WCOS seems to be advancing with some
surprising updates to old support documents that might be
setting the stage for Windows 10’s modular operating system.

Although
Windows 10X supports Win32 apps, questions have been raised
in regards to classic Windows 10 features support on Windows
10X and Windows Core OS.

In a support document, Microsoft accidentally confirmed desktop
fonts support for Windows Core OS and the document was quickly
modified to remove mention of ‘WCOS’ and future devices.

“Please note: Not all of the Desktop fonts will be in
non-desktop editions of Windows 10 such as Xbox, HoloLens,
Surface Hub, future WCOS devices, etc,” Microsoft noted in
the document.

We were able to uncover a now-edited page that confirmed
desktop fonts desktop of Windows 10X.

WCOS leak

According to clues pieced together from preview builds and job
postings, Windows Core OS is said to show up on PCs, laptops,
Xbox, dual-screen tablets, multiple screen devices, Surface
Hub, Mixed Reality headsets, and also the Internet of Things
(IoT) products.

WCOS allows Win32, UWPs and PWAs to be installed and run via
containers. In fact, Windows 10’s Core OS will be locked and
stripped down, which should naturally improve performance and
security.
