Windows Core OS is one of the projects, on which Microsoft stayed mum albeit we know quite a lot about it, thanks to previous leaks.

Microsoft has finally broken the silence on Windows Core OS as mentions of the new OS has been spotted in the company’s support document( via Windowslatest).

In the support document, a section of the page has Windows Core OS written over it as follows:

  • wcmp The Windows Shell Composer ID.
  • wPId The Windows Core OS product ID.
  • wsId The Windows Core OS session ID.

The mentions were added to the document on April 19 this year, according to GitHub.

If you recall, it’s not the first time that we’re seeing mentions of Windows Core OS in Microsoft’s support document. The name also appeared a few time on LinkedIn, the latest being the LinkedIn profile summary of a Microsoft Software Engineer, which suggested that Windows Core OS will be a cloud-driven operating system.

Another LinkedIn profile of a Software Engineer at Microsoft stated that WCOS, short for Windows Core OS, will get an updated Action Centre.

For those not aware, the much-anticipated Windows Core OS is currently being prepared for “next-gen” Microsoft devices. This includes devices like Surface Hub, HoloLens and of course, the much-hyped folding Windows 10 device Centaurus.
