Almost the final assembly of Windows 10X leaked to the Web, which makes it possible to test the capabilities of the new operating system, as well as compare it with Google’s Chrome OS. It is expected that the first version of the fresh OS will target only conventional single-screen computers and will be released this spring.
Windows 10X was first introduced back in October 2019 as an operating system designed primarily for dual-screen devices such as the Microsoft Surface Neo. However, due to the fact that the release of Surface Neo was delayed indefinitely, the Redmond corporation repurposed Windows 10X for devices with a single display.
In addition, during the development of the OS, it lost support for Win32 applications, which put it on a par with the lightweight Chrome OS. However, in the future, Microsoft plans to add support for Win32 apps to Windows 10X and provide a seamless experience on dual-screen devices, but for now it only works with UWP apps from the Microsoft Store and Progressive Web Apps through the Edge browser.
Would you like to toy around with a newer build of Windows 10X yourself? I built an emulator-esque image (read: use in Hyper-V only)
Simply create a Generation 2 VM and use this as its disk:https://t.co/7mQOA8ldUM
Enjoy 😄 https://t.co/w28SiVdkmu

It is not yet known for certain when the company plans to unveil Windows 10X, but it is reported that OEMs are preparing to show low-power devices based on the new OS in the coming months. The leaked build is available via the link in the above Twitter post, but the user is responsible for downloading and using it, as well as the associated consequences.
