Microsoft has to ensure its operating system is ready for all of the pitfalls and quirks that working on two conjoined screens will bring to Windows. Not only that, but the hardware, which includes two hinged displays and a keyboard cover that rests on-top of the touchscreen to improve the experience of typing on glass when the gadget is resting on the table like a laptop, has to be perfected too.

And with vast swathes of the workforce at home and factories across the world operating under new social distancing guidelines and reduced staff numbers – this is unlikely to be the last major delay announced by a technology giant.

In the meantime, we’ve still got a shiny new version of Windows 10 coming soon, which promises a dramatic new look and streamlined performance.
