Is Microsoft’s ‘Andromeda OS’, The New Windows 10 Mobile OS?
Microsoft is apparently working on to make Windows into a modular operating system known as “Andromeda OS” internally at the Redmond HQ, that will work cross-platform, on any device type or architecture, as reported by Microsoft insiders at Windows Central. Andromeda OS is the future support of Windows 10 operating system.
Windows OS is more than 30 years old now and is based on old and demanding code, architecture and features. With the introduction of Andromeda OS, Microsoft is looking to make Windows 10 a universal OS that will allow it to adapt to each specific device without being based on particular, prior product variants. In other words, Andromeda OS will turn Windows 10 into a modular system suitable for different architectures rather than the x86 architecture used by desktops, laptops, and tablets running Intel or AMD chips.
Andromeda OS will allow any functions to be added or removed to suit the system or device it’s required to run on. This will in turn offer developers the flexibility to build versions of Windows 10 with different features and functions, quickly and efficiently or use a Windows OS without being affected by performance-sapping features not required by the device.
Microsoft is expected to replace the mobile platform “Windows 10 Mobile” with “Andromeda OS” likely to be seen in phones and tablets, and possibly even wearables in 2018 or later.
