Windows 10X as a special edition of the OS designed for dual-screen PCs. One of the new features the OS may get is dynamic wallpaper.
During the Surface event on October 2, 2019, Microsoft introduced a number of new devices, including Surface Neo and Surface Duo.
Surface Neo is Microsoft's very own foldable PC, which comes with a detachable keyboard, Surface Slim Pen inking. It will run Windows 10X. It will feature two 9” screens connected by a 360° hinge.
The Surface Duo device is yet another Microsoft's try to enter the smartphone market. Surface Duo is the dual-screen, foldable Android device.
The company describes Windows 10X as a special edition of the OS designed for dual-screen PCs.
Windows 10X includes some advancements in the core technology of Windows that optimize it for flexible postures and more mobile use. We needed to deliver battery life that could drive not just one, but two screens. We wanted the operating system to be able to manage the battery effect of our huge catalog of Windows apps, whether they were written in the last month or five years ago. And we wanted to deliver the hardware performance and compatibility our customers expect from Windows 10.
Windows 10X will be able to run legacy Win32 applications in a container. Windows Containers isolate software from the host file system. All the file and registry changes required to run an application are packaged into Container Images. It is not clear yet if the Container technology for run Desktop apps will be using Windows Server (shared kernel) or Hyper-V VM containers but since client OSes like Windows 10 only have Hyper-V containers, it is possibly that.
Windows 10X may get dynamic wallpapers that change content depending on different factors. For example, Windows 10X comes a mountain-view wallpaper that has morning, afternoon, evening, and night variants that appear based on your device's actual time. This wallpaper also seemingly has dynamic clouds that appear every so often.
It is unknown yet if Microsoft will include such a feature to the final version of Windows 10X, and which customization options it will get.
