Microsoft’s Windows 10X Runs Surprisingly Well on a MacBook

Windows 10X is available only in preview form for now, and it already runs surprisingly well on a MacBook.

Windows 10 is Microsoft's fastest growing operating system, and has been ruling the roost as the company's top consumer platform since the summer of 2015.

At the Developer Day of this year, Microsoft finally launched its much anticipated Windows 10X emulator.

911 call released of Faye Swetlik's mom reporting her missing: full audio
The girl's discovery has shocked the small town of Cayce, which is located about 5 miles southwest of downtown Columbia. Antley declined to say what that clue was, but said it would have been something on Faye's missing person flyer.

Another developer also posted on Twitter showing Windows 10X running on a Lenovo ThinkPad T480s, albeit with some interface glitches as explained. Moreover, the emulator also made MacBook behave like a dual-screen device and allowed the user to snap two apps side-by-side. As expected the driver support is not great and most likely you will end up with features that don't function well. The Start menu, for example, embraces a more simplified design in Windows 10X, and bringing it to Windows 10 could be a pretty good idea going forward. However, you need to be well versed in PowerShell commands and other advanced aspects like hard drive partitioning. Recent reports suggest Windows 10X will also come to traditional clamshell devices.

"Even a multi-element detection process will miss issues in an ecosystem as large, diverse and complex as Windows", said Michael Fortin, Microsoft Corporate VP for Windows back in November 2018. Typically, emulators are released beforehand so that developers have enough time to test their apps for the new dual screen devices. In general Microsoft's Windows 10X is still work in progress.
