Microsoft has not really managed to get a light version of Windows 10, now it is confirmed that Windows 10X which was an attempt will be discontinued.
We just wrote some week ago that it is rumored that Windows 10X would have been shut down, now Microsoft has themselves confirmed this. However, there are some positives, things like various features and optimizations that they managed to develop during the development of Windows 10X will come to regular Windows 10 in the future, exactly what this means remains to be seen.
Microsoft says the following regarding the closure:
Instead of bringing a product called Windows 10X to market in 2021 like we originally intended, we are leveraging learnings from our journey thus far and accelerating the integration of key foundational 10X technology into other parts of Windows and products at the company.
In fact, some of this is already reflected in the core of Windows in Windows Insider preview builds, for example the new app container technology we’re integrating into products like Microsoft Defender Application Guard, an enhanced Voice Typing experience, and a modernized touch keyboard with optimized key sizing, sounds, colors and animations.
