In addition to hardware, Microsoft’s Surface event was also
about software and the company unveiled a new version of
Windows 10 for an entirely new category of computing devices.
Windows 10X, this new OS is being officially developed for
dual-screen and foldable devices.
According to people familiar with the development, Windows 10X
(Windows Core OS) as a whole is not just for dual-screen and
foldable devices. Windows 10X uses an adaptive shell codenamed
Santorini and same shell be will be used across different form
- HoloLens 2 – Oasis Shell.
- Surface Hub 2X – Aruba Shell
- Windows 10X – Santorini, an adaptive shell for dual-screen,
foldable, laptop, and tablet.
Microsoft is working on a new project codenamed Pegasus to
bring Windows 10X’s unique user interface to traditional laptop
form factors and different styles of laptops or tablets.
With Project Pegasus, Microsoft could be rebuilding the desktop
experience with modern code and the same Windows 10X experience
will be tailored for traditional form factors.
In the above-featured image, you can see a concept of the
current Windows 10X UI that the firm is testing for traditional
laptops and 2-in-1s. Windows 10X or Project Pegasus is not
supposed to replace the current Windows 10 experience and the
user interface will ship on new devices.
