The Future of 10X
Talking about the Windows 10X emulator first, we are well aware that supporting devices still are not on the market. Devices such as the Surface Neo will be hitting the market later this year so developers need to be prepped up for the launch. This emulator would allow for developers to reshape and redevelop apps according to the new screen size, dimensions and ratios. This is because of Microsoft’s claim of the fact that all native and supported apps would be running fine on the new form factor of the dual displays on these Windows 10X devices. The goal for these devices is to be able to do three major tasks:
- Expansion of an app onto the two displays
- Allowing an app to run on one screen and see its toolset on the other
- Multi-tasking of multiple apps on the two screens
What Microsoft is doing is paving way for its new platform. This is a very good move by the company. It is a way of inviting developers to shift towards a new system. It is also a way to have the system adapt to the technological environment when more and more supported devices splurge into the market.
