Windows 10 news recap: Andromeda may not be dead just yet, Surface Go officially announced, and more
Welcome back to our Windows 10 news recap, where we go over the top stories of the past week in the world of Microsoft’s flagship operating system.
New report confirms Andromeda isn’t dead, at least not yet
Andromeda headlines are all over the place at the moment. One moment it’s dead, the next it’s just postponed, then it’s back but may die at some point. Now, it looks as if Microsoft has postponed Andromeda, at least for 2018, as there is no app ecosystem to support it.
So like @maryjofoley I'm hearing Andromeda is definitely not coming in 2018. OEM devices may come, but not with Andromeda OS as it's not ready. The entire project is now under review because there's no app ecosystem to support it
