Microsoft is working on a new version of Windows with AI
The new version of Windows that Microsoft is working on is focused on security, faster updates and AI
Microsoft is working on a new, “modernized” version of Windows, designed to increase security and get faster updates, as well as focus on Artificial Intelligence (AI) capabilities to optimize hardware and software experiences.
The new version under development, which is known internally as CorePC, stands out for its intention to allow Windows to adapt to different devices in a customizable way to take advantage of the different form factors of each computer.
One of the main changes of the new version of Windows is that the company plans to implement the ‘separation of states’, as sources close to the Microsoft project explain to Windows Central.
In this way, Windows would be divided into multiple “read-only partitions” that are inaccessible to the user and third-party applications, which translates to faster updates and a more secure platform, since this could make it difficult for a ‘malware’ to infect the entire system.
This would be a great novelty compared to the current version of Windows, since it is not a state-separated platform, but the entire system is installed in a single writable partition and, therefore, all user data and files program files are stored in the same place.
In turn, CorePC could also continue to offer full versions of Windows with the current set of features and capabilities of the Windows 11 desktop, but with state separation enabled and with a compatibility layer called Neon for legacy apps. In this way, it would offer the most convenient configuration in each specific case.
Sources related to the project have also reported that Microsoft is experimenting with a version of CorePC ‘optimized for silicon’, with which it seeks to enhance the capacity of artificial intelligence.
New version of Windows for educational equipment
In addition to all this, with the separation of states Windows would advance to a “faster and more reliable” system reset functionality, an important feature for Chromebook devices, with which Microsoft would aspire to compete.
CorePC would be able to get Microsoft to release a version of Windows that would only run Edge, web apps, Android apps via Project Latte, and Office apps. In this case, the configuration would be designed for low-end computers focused on sectors such as education.
Thus, as the sources have revealed, this version of Windows, with a configuration that could compete with Chromebooks, is being tested internally.
