Microsoft officially revealed more about the Windows 10X operating system today. Microsoft has redesigned this special version of Windows 10 to make it easier to install and update the operating system. Microsoft promises windows 10X a smoother download system update, from installation to reboot to desktop for the entire upgrade process will not take more than 90 seconds.
This is very different from the Windows 10 system we are using today, where the upgrade process involves downloading updates and then applying and restarting them. Even on current high-performance, high-broadband devices, the entire upgrade process takes minutes, but Microsoft has developed a special state separation in Windows 10X to fundamentally improve the problem.
Windows 10X operating systems, drivers and applications are independent of each other, so once the device restarts, Microsoft can simply switch to the latest operating system updates. Microsoft uses container technology for traditional Win32 desktop applications to run on devices like Surface Neo, meaning they don’t interfere with system files or data.
In addition, it is reported that most of the dual-screen and collapsible devices pre-installed with the Windows 10X will be powered by Intel’s latest Lakefield processor. We know very little about the performance of these chips, but Microsoft revealed today that they will include cores of varying sizes that can run asymmetrically to save power. This means that developers can run typical desktop applications on larger cores to improve performance, while lightweight applications can be run on power-hungry cores to save battery life.
