S Mode For Windows 10 Officially Confirmed By Microsoft

Microsoft Previews New Privacy Screen For Windows Insiders

Companies like Acer, Asus, Dell, Fujitsu, HP, Samsung, and Toshiba all offered their own version of laptops that would run Windows 10 S mode, with numerous computers starting at just $189. Windows 10 S is a locked down version of Windows 10 that can only run UWP apps from the Microsoft Store, and while that makes it more secure, it also significantly limits what can be done with the OS.

The Windows 10 S version is factually a lightweight version of the conventional desktop operating system that exclusively allows for the app installation from the Microsoft Store.

Say goodbye to Windows 10 S as a standalone SKU and hello to S Mode in Windows 10.

The next marquee Windows 10 update won't be just about creators - it will also blow artificial intelligence (AI) wide open on the operating system (OS). Belfiore made this statement in response to a tweet pointing out that Windows 10 S wasn't mentioned in tweets and news stories promoting the role of the PC laptop in education. Users will still be able to enjoy the functionalities of the operating system in the same way its dedicated version was built for.

The choice to move to a Windows 10 S mode in their competing devices was expected by many, but it's also muddying the waters and making it more hard to tell which Windows PCs are meant to capture the attention of an education market that is now enamored with Chromebooks. S Mode will enable any Windows 10 PC to be toggled into the Windows 10 S sandbox. Chrome OS and Chromebooks proved popular in the education market, both because of the comparatively low price and ease of use.

"Next year 10S will be a "mode" of existing versions, not a distinct version", Belfiore said today on Twitter.
