Since Microsoft announced Windows 10X last October, there has been a lot of eagerness for new systems and hardware. Windows 10X is expected to be a more enjoyable experience than the early technology preview of Windows 10, which was born in late 2014 and early 2015. Earlier this week, the software giant released the first simulator for Windows 10X, giving many people a chance to catch a glimpse.

But it’s not hard for enthusiasts to want to run the Windows 10X operating system on real hardware.
It is important to note that Windows 10X is still in its early stages of development and has many unknown problems, so do not use it on production machines.
If you’re willing to take that risk and have confidence in your hands-on capabilities, you’ll find this “porting” experience, much like installing a full version of the Windows 10 operating system on a Lumia 950 smart machine.
Steve Troughton-Smith says he successfully installed Windows 10X on surface Go hardware and found the operating system experienced quite smoothly, much better than running in a Hyper-V virtual.

Next, it wants someone to help simplify the installation experience for Windows 10X, just as the third-party development team has provided for the Lumia 950 smartphone’s “fool-mounted Windows 10 operating system” tool.
