There is no fixed date, but Microsoft He has already anticipated that 2024 will be the year in which his new version of windows burst in with force by presenting great innovations in its operating system, which will be more modern as it is equipped with artificial intelligence and faster updates. Windows 12 it will take the best of the past and incorporate the most efficient tools to obtain an unprecedented version.
Now Microsoft wants to modernize Windows and do it more reliable, modular and securestating in its latest report that the new version will indeed notice the important changes, unlike Windows 11, which was a minor update compared to Windows 10.
Windows Core OS It was a project in which Microsoft put a lot of effort based on launching its first UWP operating system lighter, faster and safer, although it happened the same as Windows 10Xwhich was never released and was canceled in 2021.
Everything indicates that the company was not satisfied after the failure of Windows 10X and Core OS and now intends to launch a new version of both elements. Specific, CorePCwhich will be a modernized recovery of core OS, it will be based on data separation and will allow Windows 12 to be more like Android and iOS. Thus, each installed program would have to interact with the system via APIinstead of having full access to the operating system.
Windows CorePC keys
Microsoft’s idea is to achieve that its operating system was modular and more customizable, so it could run on different factors without requiring legacy components. Windows Core PC would be separated into ‘state’that is, it would be installed in different read-only partitions and not in a single one with write access as has happened in all previous versions of Windows.
Thus, faster, more stable and safer updates would be obtained. And it is that there are fewer applications that simultaneously use the system code, making Windows 12 work better and not slow down over time.
Windows CorePC will allow Microsoft compete with Google’s Chrome OS without sacrificing the application compatibility that makes Windows so popular. With CorePC it will be possible to adapt to different use cases.
According to Windows Central, Microsoft would already be testing an internal version of CorePC which only runs Edge, Android apps and Office apps, intended for ultra-budgetary PCs and educational machines.
The app hurdle
Despite being 60-75% smaller than Windows 11SE, it will have a compatibility layer call Neon (code name) that will allow legacy applications that require a shared state operating system to continue to function.
Windows CorePC boots as the full Windows desktop to be partitioned, from scratch, into a modular and configurable system while maintaining its native support for legacy applications and workflows.
In addition to the desktop, Windows 12 could have a version that includes Edge, web applications, Android applications and Office applications, thus trying to compete with Google’s Chromebooks.
The other version would require dedicated chips optimized for silicon. In this way, they would value the AI capabilities and it would vertically optimize all hardware and software experiences, just as Apple does with its Silicon platform. This would mean the possibility of Windows 12 scanning the screen to offer contextual information and project templates.
And it is that after the enormous economic investment made by Microsoft in ChatGPT, the AI was expected to be key in this new update. However, these functions will depend on optimization for specific chipsets.
Everything mentioned may or may not be fulfilled, since with more than a year to go before Microsoft’s ambitious and innovative project comes to light, a lot can change. Despite everything, this will be the philosopher’s stone of Windows CorePC and Windows 12.
