The universality of Windows makes it easy to install on a Mac. We are not going to enter the war on whether it is better or worse than macOS. Everyone has their tastes and preferences. The advantage that Mac users have is that we can install both operating systems on our machines. The reverse is also possible, with certain very specific configurations, but much more complicated.
Windows works for almost all existing computers. It has drivers for almost all the components of a computer. If we add to this that the processors and chipsets that make up a Mac do not have any exclusivity with Apple (Intel CPUs, Intel GPUs and Nvidia) we have guaranteed compatibility. Microsoft has already released Windows 10X Preview and it is already being tested on Macs. And it seems that it is very fluid.
Microsoft has almost ready its new version of Windows that promises to be faster, more reliable and more secure. Windows 10X is available in its Preview version and has already been tested on a MacBook. There is no release date for the final version of Windows 10X yet. What we do know is that it will work fine on your Mac.

Windows 10X Preview running on a MacBook
If you have a current Mac with an Intel processor, you can now create a Windows partition with Boot Camp. From there, installing Windows 10X Preview is a breeze. The good news is that while still a trial version, it runs perfectly on a MacBook.
The developer @imbushuo has installed this first version of Windows 10X Preview and comments on his account Twitter the results of that test. He says that the installation has been extremely simple and that it works very smoothly. It also indicates that there are some glitches in the system, something normal in these early trial versions.
Comment that Most of the drivers you've needed are included in the firmware, including those that allow the MacBook's Thunderbolt ports and touchpad. Surely for users who want to have Windows 10X on their Mac, this is great news. If you like tinkering, you can start now. @imbushuo has started the road ...
