The new Microsoft Surface devices running Windows 10x look compelling

Will Logos *desktop* version work on Windows 10x devices

If not currently, are there any plans to do so and what features would be different from the "regular" Windows 10 version

I'm not an expert, but my understanding is that 10x and 10 are basically the same operating systems. If that is the case, I would expect L8 to run fine.

Perhaps someone with more direct knowledge will weigh in.

Looking at the info here https://www.windowscentral.com/windows-10x it looks like yes Logos should probably run, but in a legacy container mode. As Windows 10x is initially only for 'foldable PC experiences' I'd guess Faithlife will wait and see the adoption rate of the new software / hardware format before committing resources.

A user in the Faithlife Proclaim Group posted that Proclaim does not work in  a SurfaceX because of the "special version" of Windows 10. As I recall (and my memory is not what it used to be) someone from Faithlife reported that they have no plans to write code for these ARM-based processors.

David Thomas:
SurfaceX

The Surface Pro X (which is an ARM-based device that may be able to run 32-bit Windows 10 desktop applications) is different than Windows 10X, which is a forthcoming version of Windows designed for dual-screen devices, such as the (future) Surface Neo. https://www.theverge.com/2020/1/22/21077334/microsoft-dual-screen-apps-windows-10x-android-emulator-surface-duo-neo-developers

Since Windows 10X isn't available to developers yet, we haven't tested with it.

As of now, it seems that it is now possible to install Windows 10X on some devices, like the Surface Pro lineup. Would be interested if someone could further test this and update the results here.

The improved touch animation just seems like it has huge potential of finally making Logos Desktop run better and smoother on Windows tablet! I'm excited!
