        Has M$ swapped names, or did you get the device descriptions mixed up? From the original ZDNet & Wired articles about these, the Duo (Android “phone”) is the smaller 1 on the left, & the Neo (dual-screen laptop) is on the right. Assuming Mary Jo’s latest article is right, it’s Neo that won’t make it out of Microsoft’s matrix by the end of this year. Duo is still on schedule…

        #2: Getting close to buying a refurbished Windows 10 64-bit, recently updated to v1909. Have broke the AC adapter cord going to the 8.1 machine, but before that, coaxed it into charging. Need to buy new adapter if wish to continue using it.

          GACK! You’re right. Change made. Thanks!

          I should’ve emphasized that the little feller – the Duo – will be running Android. Only the big one – the Neo – will run Windows 10X.

        It’s better to delay it and get it right.

        That’s what they did with Windows 2000, and that worked out well — it’s one of the most well-regarded OS releases of all time, on any computer.

        That’s what they didn’t do with Windows 8, which proved to be a critical mistake they’re still paying the price for today.
