Hi, my name is Joey. I'm glad to be the part of this forum and hope to find here useful information about Windows X desktop tools.

Hello Joey and welcome.
Don't exactly know what Windows X is, but unless it's a Rainmeter skin, you won't get help here, because this forum is related to Rainmeter and different skins.

Windows 10? Might be, but in such a case this probably is not the right forum.

I think there's a new version of Windows coming out (simplified and cut-down) that's going to be called Windows X. Because Microsoft would never do anything confusing! :uhuh:

There is a new version of Windows coming out called Windows 10 x or Windows X that is to compete with Chrome OS (and I guess to enter the 2 in 1 market properly) (https://www.windowscentral.com/windows-10x ).
Its coming in Spring, but only for education sectors (not on customer PC's until 2022)
According to Windows Central
"Windows 10X does not support legacy Win32 applications at launch. Windows 10X PCs in 2021 will be able to run Microsoft Edge, UWP, and web apps. Legacy Win32 application support will arrive at a later date, however. When it does, Win32 applications will run in a secure container by default, meaning those legacy applications cannot affect system performance and battery life when closed"
I guess this would mean that Rainmeter wouldn't work on Windows 10X, definitely not when it is released and maybe not later (Rainmeter might not be able to run in the background to keep skins running)

Oh, I didn't realise this was in February - I somehow found myself on the introductory page and this was near the top :D
