Microsoft's Chief Product Officer, Panos Panay, has today published a new blog post that details his thinking behind the future of Windows, and how Microsoft can innovate with Windows 10X going forward. Panay was recently put in charge of the Windows client in addition to his hardware responsibilities, allowing him greater control over both the hardware and software that Microsoft ships.
In the blog post, Panay details how Microsoft is shifting from launching Windows 10X as an operating system exclusive to foldable PCs to something that will launch on traditional form factors such as laptops and 2-in-1's. This is a result of wanting to meet customers where they are.
Microsoft is also promising innovation with Windows to ensure it's the best OS for working, learning, and playing. Over the next two holidays, Microsoft says it's going to accelerate innovation in Windows 10. No further details as to what this entails were given.
Launching Windows 10X on traditional form factors is going to give more people access to Windows 10X sooner. Those who weren't particularly sold on the idea of foldable PCs will now have the chance to use Windows 10X on a device form factor that's more familiar to them.
No details as to when we can expect Windows 10X to launch were provided. Rumors suggest it has been delayed into next year.
