Check out Windows 10X on the Microsoft Surface Pro 7
We've heard a lot about Windows 10X -- Microsoft's answer to Chrome OS -- and as we celebrated the arrival of 2021, the operating system leaked online. This has not only given people a chance to get a glimpse at what's to come -- and try it out for themselves -- but also to get the OS up and running on a variety of devices.
Indeed, one dedicated hacker has managed to get Windows 10X running on a Surface Pro 7. What's more, it all works pretty well.

So far people have managed to get Windows 10X running in a virtual machine, and even an M1-based Mac. But what most people will want is the ability to run the operating system on standard hardware and use it as their primary OS -- assuming they want to use it all, of course!
