Yesterday was Microsoft 365 Developer Day, where Microsoft finally laid all of its cards on the table for the Surface Duo, Surface Neo, and Windows 10X. While the Surface Duo emulator was released a few weeks ago, the Windows 10X emulator was released following the event, marking the first time that the new OS was usable by the general public.
Parts of the demo didn't go so well though, particularly with the Surface Duo. There were a couple of failures, and even when host Kevin Gallo brought out a backup device, that failed too. Obviously, it's not a big deal; in fact, this is to be expected. These devices aren't slated to arrive until this holiday season, and it's still super-early.
As it turns out, Microsoft actually re-shot the footage for the on-demand playback of the event. That way, if you're interested in the Surface Duo, you can see it actually working, which is probably what you tuned in to see.
The change was first spotted by Windows Central's Zac Bowden, and developer Rafael Rivera put together some side-by-side videos showing all of the changes. There were a few, including the Surface Duo demo, Adobe Spark partner references, and PicsArt partner references.
