Until now, Windows 10 is the OS with the most number of users in the world, reaching 800 million in March 2019.
With this amount, of course, users are already familiar with the advantages of the regular version of Windows 10. Then, will Windows 10X, which has limited features, sell well?
Launch Together With New Microsoft Gadgets
The 2019 Microsoft Surface Event that was held on Thursday (03/09/19) revealed a number of new Microsoft gadgets.
The new Surface gadget line-up includes Surface Laptop 3, Surface Pro 7, Surface Pro X, Surface Neo, Surface Duo and Surface Earbuds. Could this add to the list of the most successful Microsoft gadgets?
Of all the new Microsoft gadgets, the only model that will use Windows 10X is the Neo Surface which has a dual screen, a gang.
In brief, the Microsoft Surface Neo has 2 LCD screens, each measuring 9 inches, connected to a 360 degree hinge with a thickness of only 5.6mm when the screen is open.
Surface Neo has a SIM slot with LTE connectivity, USB Type-C, and Windows Hello biometric technology through its infrared camera.
Although Surface Duo also comes with a double screen, this device will not use a Windows-based OS, but a Microsoft skin version of Microsoft that has not revealed the details.
Made for Dual Screen Gadgets
Windows 10X is a light Windows version designed for dual-screen Microsoft gadgets.
Windows 10X overhauled several interface elements such as the Start Menu which now appear different with large icons, the sorting system is removed, plus the file history has now moved from the Timeline to the Start Menu.
In short, Windows 10X is made for easy navigation with touchscreen interactions, which in fact the regular version of Windows 10 already has a Tablet Mode.
Already Have a Tablet Mode, Windows 10X Will Not Sell?

Its application on the Neo Surface which by default already supports LTE also makes Windows 10X an attractive option for those of you who want to be more mobile.
Emulate Apple Steps to Separate Desktop and Tablet OS
Some time ago, Apple decided to separate iPad from iOS and make a special OS called iPadOS for the tablet.
This decision might be considered a good step by Microsoft, as evidenced by the appearance of the Windows 10X iteration on its new folding tablet, Surface Neo.
The limitations of the features in Windows 10X are still not widely revealed by Microsoft, but one thing for sure is that ordinary Windows 10 users will find a completely different interface.
Windows 10 tablet devices will not get Windows 10X updates, because this update is temporary only for Surface Neo.
The final word
The presence of Windows 10X that was announced at the 2019 Surface Event could be a blunder, or even something beneficial for Microsoft.
