We have repeatedly heard from Microsoft about its plan to move towards Windows OneCore. It is not yet clear what kind of convergence Microsoft wants to achieve with OneCore, as most of the work has been under the hood till now. From the blog post about Build 15204.
The biggest difference being that the build number and branch won’t match the builds we will be releasing for PC. This is a result of more work we’re doing to converge code into OneCore – the heart of Windows across PC, tablet, phone, IoT, HoloLens, Xbox and more as we continue to develop new improvements for Windows 10 Mobile and our enterprise customers.
But we have heard rumors / leaks suggesting that Windows OneCore will have capability to adapt to any form-factor. This will be possible with help of a composable shell. For adapting to small devices or mobile devices there may be a MobileCore. This composable shell and MobileCore combination is known as Andromeda.
Now, we have some images of Windows 10 running on very small devices posted on Twitter by Vitor Mikaelson, who originally revealed info about Andromeda. Check these images which reveal how Windows 10 looks like on very small (Mobile) devices.
As you can see Windows 10 may need some tweaking to adjust to Mobile form-factor and looks like work in progress, but UWP apps scale beautifully to any form-factor.
