Microsoft may not launch Windows 10X after all

The operating system was meant to be the company's answer to Chrome OS.

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.
