Yesterday Microsoft released Windows 10 build 20231, and also provided ISO images for clean install. The build, besides including a new OOBE page that allows optimizing the OS for user-specific tasks, also comes with a new user interface for OOBE.
OOBE (stands for Out-of-box experience ) is the experience the user has when preparing to first use a new product. In Windows, this includes the setup process of installing and/or performing initial configuration of hardware, setting privacy options, and adding a user account to the OS. Starting in Windows 10 version 20231, OOBE has the following new interface.
The above UI was implemented for Windows 10X. The well-known Windows enthusiast Albacore managed to get it working in Windows 10 build 20231.
Windows 10X as a special edition of the OS that was initially designed for dual-screen PCs. Microsoft is about to add some of Windows 10X's features to regular Desktop editions of Windows 10 on order to get the best of two Windows branches. The company may also replace some of the Desktop feature updates with Windows 10X releases. Microsoft's latest plan calls for 10X to debut on single-screen devices designed primarily for businesses (especially firstline workers) and education in the spring of 2021. And in the spring of 2022, Microsoft is aiming to roll out 10X for additional single screen and dual-screen devices. Windows 10X is expected to have blazing fast update installation on the classic Desktop devices and container security protection for Win32 apps from Windows 10. Reportedly, the initial public release of Windows 10X won't include Win32 app support in any form.
