Microsoftâ€™s Windows 10X has leaked, and itâ€™s boring.
Well, itâ€™s designed to be boring. Simple, reallyâ€”uncomplicated, straightforward, without the fuss and clutter of â€œtraditionalâ€� Windows. We wrote last year that Windows 10X now appears to be the new Windows 10 S (Windows 10 in S Mode); after spending some hands-on time with the leaked build, we believe those impressions have been confirmed.
Weâ€™d like to say that Windows 10X has been graphically overhauled, with a variety of new features. However, the fact is that if you read our early Windows 10X coverage a year agoâ€”when Microsoft was visualizing Windows 10X as the future of dual-screen devicesâ€”little has changed. (Hereâ€™s our original Windows 10X hands-on video for reference.) Well, thereâ€™s been one major tweak, of course: Windows 10X is now designed for single-screen PCs.
