Just less than 24 hours to the Microsoft event, more leaks about the new products to be unveiled have surfaced
In the latest update, popular leaker, Evan Blass has claimed that Microsoft will not only have a dual-screen Surface, but that it’ll be powered by Windows 10X, a new operating system variant built for “dual- and folding-screen devices.”
While Evan didn’t say so much about the new OS, especially with respect to what the new interface look like, he reportedly claimed that the OS will run desktop apps in “containers” — a term that otherwise means virtualization.
In a simpler definition, the 10X apps will not be the same as the traditional Windows 10 apps, however, they will likely virtualize a Windows 10 container to run apps that aren’t on 10X.
While this tip is still considered as rumor, it correspond with past rumors that hinted that Microsoft is believed to be working on a new device- Centaurus, a dual-screen Surface that would serve as a hybrid tablet and laptop.
It was reported back then that the device would run a lightweight version of Windows (probably the 10X that is been leaked) specifically made for mobile designs like this.
The tips suggested Centaurus could launch before 2019 was over, and that we can hope to see at the Microsoft event tomorrow.
