Microsoft's Windows 10X operating system won't ship this year and may never hit the market, according to a Friday post on IT site Petri.com. It was designed as a simplified version of Windows 10.

Windows 10X was revealed in 2019 as the operating system for dual-screen PCs like the Surface Neo, which is currently in limbo. However, CNET sister ZDNet reported last April that it would come to single-screen devices

Despite Windows 10X's apparent shelving, Microsoft is expected to reveal a refreshed Windows 10 later this year, as part of its rumored Sun Valley update

The company declined to comment.
