Microsoft's dual-screen PC, known as the Suface Neo was announced in October 2019 as one of the first devices that would ship with Windows 10X. Since then, Microsoft has canceled Windows 10X and postponed the Surface Neo indefinitely. It was originally supposed to ship in the fall of 2020, but that never happened. We don't know when or if Surface Neo will ever ship.
Windows 10X was a new version of Windows that has been built from the ground up for new PCs, and was supposed to 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. Unfortunately, Microsoft has postponed the project.
Microsoft has today confirmed that Windows 10X will not be launching this year, citing a decision to instead deliver certain parts of Windows 10X on other Windows products instead. Microsoft will be bringing a number of Windows 10X innovations to the full version of Windows this fall.
With recent reports revealing that Microsoft has put Windows 10X on the backburner, the question around what the future looks like for Windows is more apparent than ever. Windows 10X was supposed to lay the foundation for the next generation of Windows, but with that no longer happening, where does that leave Windows as a whole?
At this point, who knows if Windows 10X will ever ship. I'm more worried about the Surface Neo, which is at risk of never launching if Windows 10X doesn't. Should Microsoft attempt to ship Surface Neo with full Windows 10 instead? I think they could and should. Here are my thoughts.
A new report from today claims that Microsoft has put Windows 10X on hold indefinitely, with no plans to bring it to market this year. This comes after Microsoft publicly delayed Windows 10X, promising a launch in 2021 that would come first to single-screen PCs. Now, it looks like that plan has been totally scrapped, and 10X is now on the backburner as Microsoft refocuses its efforts on the full version of
A new distro of Linux will soon be available that makes your system look like Windows 10X. It will feature a centralized Start Menu and an overall look that resembles Microsoft's upcoming operating system.
Microsoft has remained incredibly tight-lipped regarding its plans for Windows 10X. After announcing that the platform would be shifting strategy from dual-screen to single-screen PCs, the company has gone silent about when or what to expect from Windows 10X when it launches.
Earlier this week, Panos Panay dropped a brief yet tantalizing tease that something big was on the way for Windows by referring to what’s next as ‘the next generation of Windows.’ Microsoft hasn’t used terminology like that since the debut of Windows 10 in 2015, and that was because Windows 10 was a new operating system replacing the previous one.

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.
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.
