Windows 10X is going to be an operating system developed by Microsoft as part of the Windows NT family. It was officially unveiled and announced on October 2, 2019, as a dual-screen device operating system. On May 4, 2020, it was announced that Windows 10X will also support single display devices.
Windows 10X will support Surface Neo.
It would be released around 2021. Its design is really similar to the Windows 10 update 2004 that came out in May 2020.
Unlike other Windows builds, Windows 10X is stripped of legacy components which allows for much better performance. Legacy apps will run in an emulator.

- This was specifically intended for dual-screen devices, but development is being shifted to single-screen devices.
