windows andromedaMicrosoft is taking the next steps in its "One Windows" vision with an internal project called "Andromeda OS" that turns Windows 10 into a fully modular platform and lays foundations for the future of Windows. Windows is now over 30 years old, which isbeyond ancient in technology years. As a result of this, Windows itself is encumbered by features, functions, and components that some devices today may no longer need. In an industry where new device types are being introduced all the time, Windows itself is too old and heavy to be able to adapt to those new devices (an example of which are smartwatches) quickly enough. As it turns out, Microsoft is aware of this and is working on something internally that looks to solve this problem. In layman's terms, its ultimate goal is to make Windows 10 much more flexible, allowing it to be installed on a wider variety of devices without being based on specific, pre-existing product variants. As a result of this, Windows itself can become smaller depending on the device, the OS itself can be built faster, and devices won't be encumbered by components and features they don't actually need; speeding up overall performance in the process on smaller or less capable devices...Full details and more can be found on our forum.
