Microsoft recently announced the second-generation Surface
Hub that comes with a 50.5-inch display which would
support 4K resolution. The Surface
Hub 2 comes with some welcome upgrades in terms of hardware
and software as well. It appears that the Surface Hub 2
runs a special version of Windows 10 operating system “with a
focus on a collaborative environment.”

The people familiar with the development of Microsoft’s
ecosystem believe that the Surface Hub 2 runs a new variant of
Windows 10 which could be the long-rumoured
Windows Core OS.

Windows Core OS (WCOS) aims to turn Windows 10 into a fully
modular platform and report suggests that it would lay down the
foundations for the future of the platform. With Windows Core
OS and CShell, Microsoft is turning Windows 10 into a modular
platform that runs across all form factors.

Windows Core OS will remove the legacy elements from the
platform and it will also pave the way for a full UWP version
of Windows 10. CShell, on the other hand, is a composable
shell that’s supposed to make Windows 10 adaptable and it would
apparently offer a more customized experience tailored to each
device.

Windows Core OS has composers for different hardware. The
Surface Hub composer is codenamed Aruba and the mobile composer
is reportedly known as Andromeda. The launch video of Surface
Hub offers the first look at Windows Core OS and Aruba. The
video also confirms that Windows Core OS would come with
dynamic wallpaper that “moves in the background.”

Microsoft has also added support for multi-user sign
support and Windows Hello in the OS for the Surface Hub, and
the huge investment in the software side of the flagship device
is quite noticeable. The Surface Hub 2 would become
available to everyone next year and the company could detail
the other features of the device later this year.

Microsoft is working hard to finalize the Windows Core OS
project, and one of the devices that could be powered by
Windows Core OS is Andromeda, the long rumoured foldable mobile
type device that’s supposed to create a new category of
devices. Microsoft is expected to announce both Windows Core OS
and Andromeda this year along with other details.
