Microsoft unexpectedly confirms next-generation Windows: Modular, cross-platform experience consistent

Following the appearance of Geekbench, Windows Core OS (WCOS) even appeared in Microsoft’s official support documents. In the document, Microsoft inadvertently confirmed desktop font support for Windows Core OS. Happily, the document was quickly modified to remove “WCOS” and future devices.

This proves that Microsoft doesn’t seem to have given up on the idea of unifying the Windows 10 experience, and that the company is still actively testing the Windows Core operating system for upcoming devices.

Windows Core OS is a thin version of Windows, and Surface Neo, Surface Hub 2S, and Hololens are all developed using Windows 10X.

Unlike Windows 8, the Windows Core operating system is not touch-centric because it has components/adaptive UI/UX for all form devices. CoreO S is interacting with computing devices in a completely different way, including desktops, laptops, dual-screen devices, Surface Hub, and Hololens, which you can understand as modular operating systems in a way.

Although Windows 10X primary push UWP, PWA programs, for Win 32 applications need to be implemented with the help of containers/sandboxes, this will naturally improve performance and security.

Microsoft is expected to announce the new progress at the Build 2020 online developer conference in May.
