Ok, I'll bite: wut[*]?

[*] I think that's how it's spelled, according to the meme...

[Edit - probably related...]

So this just showed up...full title: "Introducing Windows 10X: enabling dual-screen PCs in 2020"

I've had dual-screen PCs for decades; my NUC is currently driving 3 screens. Why should I be excited about this?

I know what they meant--but if that's the case, then maybe the title should be "enabling dual-screen tablets and similar devices in 2020". Because that's really all that's new here. And other than the new hardware we can anticipate from this, did they really have much to add to Windows itself to support this...?

[Edit #2]

Uh-oh. Yet another version of Windows 10. So here's my first question...is it dumbed down like Windows 10 Home, which you cannot RDP into and join domains and such, or following Pro, which allows for those scenarios? Why not just roll the features that make "10X" unique into the other versions rather than introducing yet another SKU?
