Microsoft this year changed the way it organizes operating system testing to gradually upgrade Windows in the form of updates to Windows 10 features. Back in February, the First 20H1 version of the Skip Loop, a Windows Insider program, was available. This is unprecedented because 19H1 was still being tested at the time, and this is the first time in history that Insiders skipped two versions.
Microsoft is looking to align its Windows 10 development with Azure, so we’ve made a small update in the second half of 2019, with the next major update to be released in 2020.
The 20H1 was expected to be released next spring, but that is not the case. According to Zac Bowden of Windows Central, 20H1 RTM is likely to be released publicly in December. In addition, Microsoft is reported to have completely changed the development schedule for Windows 10, so future H1 updates will be completed in December and H2 updates will be released in June.
Naturally, we can assume that 20H2 should be rtM in June, which means that Windows 10X will be ready by then. The Windows 10X operating system is primarily designed for collapsible and dual-screen devices. These include surface Neo and Lenovo’s collapsible ThinkPad X1 PC.
It is still unknown when these versions will actually be released to the public. Under the current development cycle, Microsoft has retained about two months to update features, from RTM release to official release. One reason why it’s not clear is that Microsoft promised as early as 2017 that Windows 10 and Office 365 Pro Plus would be the same as the release schedule, so if the Windows 10 schedule changes, Office 365 must also change.
