Windows and the Composable Shell (CShell)

Microsoft designed Windows on the basis of two major components. One is the special “User mode,” and the other one is the “Kernel mode.” The user mode is what includes all the basic necessities. On the other hand, the “kernel mode,” connects the hardware and the software. Microsoft’s three major products i.e. smartphones, PC and Xbox One pack up multiple types of Windows 10. The company packs Composable Shell (CShell) with the software. CShell is what makes it possible for both the modes to work individually. Thanks to CShell, the Redmond-giant does not need the assistance of any specific hardware for these systems to work. In other words, Surface Phone will change its interface automatically. Andromeda comes packed with the same design aesthetics.

This further gives more value to rumors that claim that Surface Phone might be powered by Andromeda.
