Windows 10X cancellation shows it can’t outgrow the desktop

Windows 10X cancellation shows it can’t outgrow the desktop

A lot of companies from all industries were hit hard by the COVID-19 pandemic. Some have been able to recover while others closed for good. Some were forced to shift their priorities and delay or completely scrap plans. Thanks to a global shortage in semiconductor components, tech companies are now being hit even more, one way or another. Those factors are reportedly behind Microsoft's decision to indefinitely put Windows 10X on hold but that is actually a symptom of an even bigger problem, one that will probably see Windows forever stuck to desktops and laptops. perhaps even on Intel's and AMD's x86/x64 platforms only.

Windows 10X may be dead as Microsoft falters on Chrome OS rival

Windows 10X has been official for about a year and half now, but those who were looking forward to the more lightweight version of Windows 10 - meant to go toe-to-toe with Chrome OS - might want to temper their expectations a bit. A new report today is claiming that Windows 10X won't be arriving in 2021 and may not be arriving in the future at all. While that is obviously disappointing news for anyone who was looking forward to Windows 10X, there might be a silver lining to this announcement at the end of it all.

Microsoft Windows Defender bug could fill up disks with thousands of files

Microsoft Windows Defender bug could fill up disks with thousands of files

Much of today's modern operating systems are arcane black boxes that no one but the most experienced computer users know. Not that most users know where to look or have access to some folders anyway. So when a system app silently fills up a hidden folder with trash files, most users might not know where to look. This recent incident plaguing some Windows users isn't actually the work of some new malware. Instead, it's actually the fault of Microsoft's own Windows Defender, a buggy Windows Defender at that.

Windows 10 finally gets Bluetooth AAC audio support

Windows is arguably the most-used operating system in the world and yet there are things where it's still playing catch up with others, especially mobile platforms like Android and iOS. One area it has long been criticized for is the handling of Bluetooth audio, both the media itself as well as related accessories. It seems, however, that Microsoft is finally catching up in some regard with the next version of Windows 10 that will finally bring support for one popular audio codec as well as make Bluetooth audio accessories less of a pain to manage.

Galaxy Book Go specs leak hint at durable Windows 10 Arm laptop

Galaxy Book Go specs leak hint at durable Windows 10 Arm laptop

When Samsung unveiled its most powerful Galaxy devices this week, it clearly didn't consider the Galaxy Book Go to be worthy of being included in that category. After all, there hasn't been a Windows 10 Arm device that could be considered on par with their Intel equivalents, unlike the M1 Macs. That may be the reason why the Galaxy Book Go was a no show at this week's event but that only means that there's plenty of room for someone to leak the affordable device in its entirety.

Windows 10 Insider Preview adds Eco mode to throttle processes

Operating systems, including Linux, usually have a handful of processes or programs running in the background even when you don't even have a single window visible. Managing these processes is an advanced activity that only seasoned computer users are familiar with but there will always come a time when people, especially those on Windows, will need to take a peek at those. That's what Windows 10's Task Manager is for and it's getting some powerful features in a future Windows release.

Galaxy Book Go with Windows 10 on Arm to target Chromebooks

Samsung already teased that it will be revealing its most powerful Galaxy yet next week, but those hoping for a new high-end smartphone have already been warned not to hold their breaths. The event will most likely all revolve around notebooks but Samsung might also be stretching the "most powerful" description a bit too much. Part of that lineup will apparently include a Galaxy Book Go that, unlike the others, will be settings its sights on the affordable Chromebook market.

Windows 10’s big taskbar update with news and weather is on the way

Back in January, Microsoft rolled out a Windows Insider update that included some big changes to the taskbar.

Windows can now run Linux GUI apps directly in WSL2 Preview

Windows can now run Linux GUI apps directly in WSL2 Preview

A few decades ago, the powers that be at Microsoft characterized Linux and open source in general as a cancer. Today, the company has pretty much embraced and even extended them, acquiring GitHub and allowing Linux to run almost natively inside Windows. The latter, officially named Windows Subsystem for Linux, is perhaps one of the best and most perplexing embodiments of its newfound love for Linux. It has now taken one step further by upgrading WSL2 to allow running graphical Linux apps, no third-party workarounds needed.

Microsoft Cloud PC launch could just be months away

The idea of being able to use your computer may appeal to some, especially those who don't like being tethered to their desks or even homes for long periods of time. So far, however, the solution that the computing industry has come up with revolves around portable computers, be it laptops, tablets, or even smartphones. Some more advanced users, especially those that simply need access to a command line interface, can make do with simple remote access. Microsoft, however, might bring a fuller Windows experience with a Cloud PC service that is launching very soon.
