Windows 10X update new details revealed by Microsoft

Windows 10X new details

Windows 10X is rumoured to be a modular and multi-device
operating system that will compete against the likes of
ChromeOS in the education niche.

Based on last year’s announcement, it looks like Windows 10X is
going to be a ‘hybrid’ OS, which means the operating system
will be based on Windows Core OS and it will support multiple
form factors.

Windows 10X is optimized for both dual-screen devices and
traditional desktop UI, such as the Surface Pro, Dell XPS or HP
15. However, it will first launch with new single-screen PCs
and then expand to
Surface Neo-like products in early 2022.

To put it simply, Windows 10X update looks to be Microsoft’s
way of improving Windows 10 into a more efficient operating
system with modern codes – but it will not become available to
the public as a digital download.

A new support document, spotted by us earlier today, suggests
that Windows 10X will use “Windows Drivers”, a new driver model
introduced with Windows 10 May 2020 Update (version 2004).

Windows 10X drivers

Starting with Windows 10 version 2004, drivers are now
classified as either Windows Drivers or Windows Desktop
Drivers. While the ‘Desktop Drivers’ will run exclusively on
traditional computers, Microsoft says its new ‘Windows Drivers’
will run on devices with both Windows 10X and Windows 10.

“Windows Drivers will run on all Windows 10 variants, including
Windows 10X and Windows 10 Desktop editions. Windows Desktop
Drivers will only run on Windows 10 Desktop editions,” the
support
document reads.

Windows 10X won’t use a special or exclusive version of drivers
to run programs, which means it would be possible for companies
to use the same driver across all of their offerings.

In addition, Microsoft confirmed that the new Windows Drivers
must adhere to “sticker reliability and serviceability
requirements” on Windows 10X.

Microsoft also confirmed that it won’t force the vendors to
modify their existing drivers to meet additional requirements,
but making appropriate changes will enhance the quality and
reliability, as well as prepare the driver for Windows 10X
devices.

As we mentioned at the outset, this operating system is made
for new devices only, but independent developers will be able
to create a streamlined unofficial installation experience for
existing devices and the universal driver approach should make
things easier.
