Microsoft Plans Include Andromeda OS for Windows 10 Future

Andromeda OS

Microsoft is aiming at morphing Windows 10 into a completely modular system. This will allow the features to be bolted on and tailored as per respective device requirements. This leads the company to come up with its internal Andromeda OS. Check out Windows Central for more information on this particular Microsoft project.

The idea is simple – to have only one version of the Windows 10, having components that are entirely modular. This will stop the OS from having different variants, but based on same core aspects, and yet having differences. This is where the company is on a sorting process, providing an organized vibe in its internal developments, which isn’t new.

Thus, features or components can be swiped away or added according to device necessity. This will lead the OS for being fully customized to the machine. This also checks that OS is perfectly streamlined without any unnecessary bloat.

The entire process of Andromeda OS has the ambition to make the Windows 10 more agile and more flexible in adaptability. Since new devices are coming up every now and then, meeting various requirements is one significant objective.

Andromeda OS starts with Mobiles

As per Windows Central, Andromeda OS will have its effects on mobiles initially, like tablets, phones, and even wearables. It is expected to be ready by next year.

In the context, there are heavy rumors that the highly anticipated Surface Phone may pack the Andromeda. 2018 may even see a new device running the OS.

On the other hand, Andromeda goes perfectly with the CShell Initiative of Microsoft. This initiative is a new Windows Shell providing flexible and scalable UI for more efficiency across various devices.

In case you are familiar with the term Andromeda in this industry, Google had a project bearing the same name. It aimed at merging Chrome OS and Android, but the search engine giant cancelled it this summer. The project that took over is the ‘spiritual successor’ project Fuchsia.
