Third-party developer Gustave Monce managed to get Windows 10X to run on the Surface Duo.
Originally, Windows 10X was restricted to one display of the Duo, but that limitation has been fixed.
The Surface Duo running Windows 10X runs in a similar manner to the Surface Neo that Microsoft canceled.
When Microsoft first unveiled the Surface Duo, the company also announced the Surface Neo. The fates of those devices have gone down different paths, with the Duo shipping to consumers and receiving a sequel while the Neo never saw the light of day. Despite this divergence, the Duo and Neo are now connected by Windows 10X.
The Surface Neo was supposed to ship with Windows 10X, a modern version of Windows that shed some of the legacy and bloat of previous generations. Like Neo, Windows 10X was never released, but early builds of it gave us a glimpse of what a lightweight version Windows could look like.
Windows 10X was never meant for the Duo, which runs Android, but it has been forced onto the device.
Third-party developer Gustave Monce has worked for years to get Windows to run on the Duo. He recently got Windows 10X to run on the foldable. Late Sunday night, Monce shared that he figured out how to get Windows 10X to run on both screens of the Surface Duo.
