WINDOWS 10X :MICROSOFT ACCIDENTALLY LEAKED WINDOWS 10 FUTURE OPERATING SYSTEM 2020: WINDOWS CORE OS

Microsoft does not seem to have given up on the idea of ​​unifying the Windows 10 experience, and is still actively testing the upcoming Windows Core OS devices. Maybe you still have questions about the existence of Windows Core OS, but now Microsoft officials have accidentally leaked new details of the unreleased operating system. According to IT House, Windows Core OS is a streamlined version of Windows . It is Windows 10X in Surface Neo and is also used in Surface Hub 2, HoloLens. Of course, it had previously planned to support the Surface Phone “Andromeda”, but later changed, Microsoft turned to Android.

Unlike Windows 8, Windows Core OS is not touch-centric because it has a self-contained shell that works in all shapes. Developing Core OS is a radically different approach, with new interactions with computing devices such as desktops, laptops, dual-screen devices, Surface Hub, and Hololens. The development of WCOS seems to be making some surprising updates to the old support documentation, which may lay the foundation for Windows 10’s modular operating system. Although Windows 10X supports Win32 applications , issues regarding support for classic Windows 10 features on Windows 10X and Windows Core OS remain. According to foreign media Windows latest report, in the support document, Microsoft unexpectedly confirmed the desktop font support for Windows Core OS, and quickly modified the document to remove references to “WCOS” and future devices.

Microsoft notes in the document: “Please note: Not all desktop fonts will be used in non-desktop versions of Windows 10, such as Xbox, HoloLens, Surface Hub, future WCOS devices, etc.” We were able to find a now edited page that confirms the desktop font desktop of Windows 10X. Based on preview releases and leads for job postings, it is said that Windows Core OS will appear on PCs, laptops, Xbox, dual-screen tablets, multi-screen devices, Surface Hub, mixed reality devices, and Internet of Things (IoT) products. WCOS allows Win32, UWP and PWA applications to be installed and run through containers. In fact, Windows 10’s Core OS will be locked and streamlined, which will naturally improve performance and security.

What’s New in Windows 10X Emulator Image:
  • The Windows 10X emulator image (build 19578) includes a new EULA, which no longer requires it to be installed in the Windows Insider Preview version. You can install it on Windows 10 version 10.0.17763.0 or later to test existing applications on a dual screen device simulator.
In order to use the Windows 10 Insider Preview SDK, developers must set up their development environment on the Windows Insider Preview version.
  • This update applies the Windows 10X window model to containers running Win32 applications. System-defined window placement ensures users get a consistent and streamlined windowing experience tailored for smaller, dual-screen, and touch-friendly devices. Although there are still some gaps, they will be resolved in a future update.
  • Contains an earlier version of the modern file manager (labeled Beta). It’s designed to work with OneDrive file sync, so you need to connect to your operating system’s Microsoft account through the Settings app or by logging into a Microsoft app (such as the App Store).
  • During the installation process, installing Visual Studio Remote Tools no longer prompts about the Machine.config file.
  • The emulator says “GPU is not running. Problem code: 43”. If the host’s system version is earlier than the Windows 10X image, the recent regression cannot initialize the GPU.
  • The lock screen may stop responding. If so, use the device portal and restart the ModernShellUXApp.exe process.
  • Sometimes applications running in a Win32 container may not display correctly. Clicking the icon in the taskbar usually launches the application correctly.

Windows 10 May 2020 Update – Microsoft released Major operating system update

Microsoft has released the long-awaited update to its operating system, the Windows 10 May 2020 Update (version 2004).

In April, the final version of the Windows 10 May 2020 Update became available to participants in the Windows Insider testing program , and a couple of weeks ago access to the update was received by subscribers of the Microsoft Developer Network . Now Microsoft has begun distributing the update for ordinary users.

At the moment, the update is available only to users who manually check for updates in Windows 10. To check for an update manually, go to the “Update and Security” settings section and select “Windows Update”.

It should be the largest OS update for 2020. The next semi-annual update of Windows 10 20H2 (version 2009), which will be released in the fall, will bring only general improvements.

The May update brings new features and a changed interface to the Cortana voice assistant, improvements to Windows Search, the second version of the Linux subsystem with full support for Linux applications, as well as a lot of small changes to the graphical interface, security system, and many other components of the system.

Cortana Voice Assistant has now received a separate window, can move around the desktop, update through the Microsoft Store, and so on. The new dialog design makes it easy to choose between voice and text input.

In addition, the Windows 10 May 2020 Update takes games to the next level. There is support for DirectX 12 Ultimate, improved support for ray tracing DirectX Raytracing 1.1, DirectX Mesh Shader, WDDM 2.7 (Windows Display Driver Model) for improved multi-monitor operation, setting the “graphics” GPU hardware acceleration, and a number of other new features.

Separately, it is worth noting the new cloud recovery feature from the cloud. If something went wrong, the system can be restored from the cloud. Restoring in the old way also remained available as an option.

Windows 10 update is available to the elite

Microsoft has released the final version of a major operating system update, the Windows 10 May 2020 Update.

Automatic “May” update for ordinary users will not start earlier than next month, which determines the name of the update. However, the final version of the Windows 10 May 2020 Update is now available for Windows Insider testing program participants.

According to Brandon LeBlanc, chief manager of the Windows Insider program, the Windows 10 May 2020 Update (20H1) is now ready for release and now the company is putting the finishing touches. He emphasized that the assembly now released under the number 19041.207 (KB4550936) should be final.

The Windows 10 May 2020 Update, also known as 2004 and codenamed 20H1, brings new features and a redesigned interface to Cortana’s voice assistant, improvements to Windows Search and Linux, and a ton of small changes to the GUI, including new icons for applications.

 

Microsoft asks not to install a new version of Windows 10 in some cases

Microsoft has just released the largest update to its operating system in 2020 – the Windows 10 May 2020 Update (version 2004 ).

At the same time, the release information page was updated. And if yesterday it contained a proud inscription that there are no known operating problems in the system now, now the length of the list of known and as yet unsolved problems is simply amazing. So before installing it is worth studying and making sure that these problems do not apply to you or will not create big trouble.

We will name some of them. Windows 10 May 2020 Update may prevent Bluetooth connectivity for more than one device at a time. This can lead to a serious problem when using a wireless mouse, keyboard and headphones at the same time. Microsoft associates this with Realtek Bluetooth drivers. Companies are already working on a solution. At the moment, the Windows 10 May 2020 Update does not apply to devices with such problematic drivers, and Microsoft recommends that you do not install the update using the Media Creation Tool until they solve the problem.

The company also recognized a problem with Conexant audio drivers. A problem with the Conexant or Synaptics drivers can even lead to a “blue screen of death” after installing the update. Companies understand, it is recommended not to update the system by force.

There is also a problem with monitors that support VRR technology (Variable refresh rate, if the system uses integrated Intel graphics. The system simply does not activate VRR in most games if Intel integrated graphics are used. However, the resume is still the same – companies understand, do not insist on an update yourself.

Devices with Thunderbolt docking stations can cause a blue screen of death when connected. On devices with network adapters that support Always On, Always Connected, sudden shutdowns and reboots may occur. Among these devices are branded Surface Pro 7 and Surface Laptop 3.

On a PC with Nvidia GPU drivers earlier than 358.00, after the upgrade, system crashes and a “blue screen of death” may occur.

And this is not all of the known Microsoft problems in the Windows 10 May 2020 Update. In all of these cases, the company emphasizes that work is ongoing and updating is not recommended on its own.

Windows 10 will have full support for Linux applications

WSL2 Launches GUI-Enabled Linux Applications with Hardware Acceleration

At the Build 2020 conference, Microsoft announced improved support for Linux applications with a graphical interface: they can be run on Windows 10, and with hardware acceleration of the GPU.

windows 10 update

Support for Linux applications in Windows 10 appeared with the first generation of Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL), but it worked selectively and slowly, and also relied on a third-party solution. WSL2 will fix everything: there will be full-fledged support for applications with a graphical interface (for example, it will be possible to launch two versions of Firefox – for Windows and for Linux) and hardware acceleration of the GPU, with hardware acceleration coming first – in a few months it will be available in Windows 10 Insiders Preview (although the final version is expected only in the fall with the release of the Windows 10 Fall 2020 Update).

Currently, Microsoft is completing work on WSL2, but this component will not be automatically included in Windows 10 – users will need to install it separately through Windows Update.
