Windows 10X, a new version of Windows 10, now supports laptops with two screens. The Windows 10X version is a good example of an updated, up-to-date operating system that is ready to support not only the software level but also the latest hardware that is being developed with technology.
Windows 10 now has over 900 million devices, Microsoft notes. But now the PC world is about to compete with the TouchBook that brought the MacBook.
New Dual-Screen Laptops
So far, the desktop / laptop has a multiple screen experience with multiple monitors attached to it, but now it is taking on a new look. It came with more than one screen for laptops.
There are two dual-screen modes currently available in the world. One is to replace the keyboard with the existing laptops. It’s almost like a Foldable Tab. But, due to the middle edge, there are two separate screens. Ex: Intel’s Twin River laptop.
Another is the touch bar on the Macbook, and a larger touch screen on top of the keyboard. Ex: ASUS ZenBook Pro Duo
Microsoft has added a new product called Surface Neo.
Microsoft’s New Surface Neo
The Surface PC series has come up with amazing features from the very beginning, and now combines both Dual-Screen modes.
It should stretch horizontally like a book. Opening apps opens on the left side of the screen. Then open another App on the right. Or, when you drag the App to the left and place it in the middle, the entire screen is captured. Comes with a separate keyboard.
Introducing New Surface Neo
If you want to use it as a laptop, simply stretch it like a normal laptop, take a leaky keyboard on the bottom and place it on the screen. (This is well illustrated in the video above.)
Then the second screen gets smaller and the top of the keyboard allows for emoji, GIF, player commands, etc. Microsoft calls it Wonder Bar.
This does not require a hardware trackpad. It also works as part of the Wonder Bar. All you have to do is push the leaking keyboard up. Then the bottom part becomes a trackpad just like a normal laptop. Not right?
The exact date of its release has not yet been announced, but the Surface Neo web page says it could be a year-end date.
Windows 10X brings to life on both screens
Although the screen size of the hardware is large, it cannot run without the support of the operating system. But laptop manufacturers have added additional software to Windows 10, not a laptop with a keyboard on top. If you set up the software partition directly from Microsoft, a common standard will be built into it.
“We aim to provide good battery power for two monitors, not for one. The app should be able to run smoothly, even if the app was only recently created five years ago. ” Microsoft notes on its blog.
They also have the option of installing a large number of updates in just 90 seconds.
Windows 10X is not just a complete removal of the old Windows 10 base, but another version of the polished version to fit new hardware. It may also become part of the current version in the future. However, there are some differences in UI as well.
New Features of New Microsoft’s Windows 10X
Windows 10X is a read-only operating system. That is, the average person can go to a folder like C: \ Windows and view the files in the folder, but it cannot be changed. Simply put, it’s like Android or iOS. As a result, RootKit is protected by malware.
In terms of UI, the Start Menu has been removed again, and replaced with a Launcher on Linux, Mac and Android.
Apps built by modern UWP and PWA will run in Containers on the operating system. Win32, or older software, also runs in Containers, so it won’t crash the entire computer when it crashes.
If you are interested in trying out Windows 10X and developing software for it, you can use the emulator released by Microsoft. Details and download links are available on the Windows 10X development tools web page.
