Microsoft says windows 10X systems will be container-enabled to not only support most traditional desktop applications, but also ensure that the operating system is protected from malware and performance degradation. But Microsoft also said running Win32 apps through containers would be restricted and some permissions would not be supported.

This means that either all apps have access to privacy-sensitive hardware such as cameras, or all are inaccessible. Users cannot use extensions or plug-ins designed by third-party developers in file managers. For example, TeraCop, a utility that can move and copy files, may not be available on Windows 10X.

Similarly, applications located in the system tray, such as battery percentage applications, volume controllers, or temperature detectors, may not run on the 10X. Microsoft says it has no current plans to support system taskbar plug-ins, file manager add-ons, and so on. Microsoft will also block hooks from intercepting keyboards and mice.

It is important to note that the operating system is read-only and designed in lock-in mode. The operating system can run applications downloaded from outside the Microsoft Store, but these applications must have good reputation and signature code. And you won’t be able to use the registry editor to optimize Windows.
