This is the Windows Central Podcast, and this week we're back with more follow up on Surface Pro 7+, and Zac spells out what Microsoft could be doing to improve Surface Duo. He and Daniel also take on Windows 10X, haptic touchpad, HP's Omen 15 gaming laptop, and more.
Microsoft is building a dual-screen Surface PC that runs a new variant of Windows known as Windows 10X that will be launching to the public at the end of 2020. Right now, information around the Surface Neo is light, and that seems to be a deliberate move by to keep fans interested, and also not to give competitors an advantage by beating them to market. So, to keep everything it all in one handy place, we've written up everything we know about the Surface Neo.
We're back with another exciting episode of the Windows Central Podcast, and this week, Zac and Dan catch up on Microsoft's Surface Pro 7+ for Business and tour an as-yet-unreleased version of Windows 10X for single-screen PCs. Microsoft Edge 88 is here as well, plus confusion and consternation regarding Xbox Live Gold. The guys also check out some of the best announcements from CES...
Microsoft announced in May last year that it was repositioning Windows 10X as an OS for single-screen PCs, and that's the last we heard about Windows 10X. We haven't had any new preview builds, or an official update from the company about how the OS is going. Now, a near final build of Windows 10X for single-screen PCs has leaked, giving us a chance to go hands-on with some of the changes Microsoft has made to Windows 10X.
Windows 10X is a new version of Windows that has been built from the ground up for new PCs, and will begin shipping on hardware in 2021. It's built on top of a new modern version of Windows called 'Windows Core OS' that guts legacy components and features in favor of contemporary user experiences and enhanced security. Here's everything you need to know.
Microsoft is planning to ship new Surface hardware in the first half of 2021 in the form of an updated Surface Pro and Surface Laptop with new processors and more RAM options. According to my sources, these new devices will feature the same external designs as their previous generation counterparts, with no major design changes expected.
The year is almost over, so it’s time to look ahead to 2021 and see what we can expect from Windows in 2021. Windows 10 has taken somewhat of a backseat when it comes to major features or OS changes in the last couple of years, but that appears to be about to change as Microsoft aims to refocus on the OS in big ways next year.
Microsoft has released the MSIX installer packages of Edge Insider channels for Windows 10X and HoloLens 2 today. Microsoft previewed the new Microsoft Edge on Windows 10X earlier this year, and the availability of the MSIX allows Windows 10X emulator testers to install an Insider channel of their choice.
It's been some time since we've seen any concrete news about Windows 10X. But people waiting in anticipation for the new version of Windows 10 have something to check out now, a video showcasing the Windows 10X out of box experience (OOBE) on desktop has appeared online. The brief video confirms that this new OOBE will soon be making its way to Windows 10 desktop.
