Microsoft to make Windows S a 'mode' of Windows 10

Windows 10

Upgrade your computer with the regime's Mode to the normal version of Windows 10 will be free regardless of the release.

It's been a while since Microsoft released a new Windows 10 build to the Slow ring, but today, the company released build 17115. Microsoft has certified that they are giving up Windows 10 S as an independent iteration of its platform and will instead offer an "S Mode" in already-existing versions, starting next year.

This would imply doing away with Windows 10 S as a separate operating system, and Microsoft has confirmed that this is how they will be proceeding.

However, PCWorld senior editor Mark Hachman noted in a tweet yesterday that Futuresource's report did not specifically mention Windows 10 S. When it released Windows 10 S previous year, Microsoft said it had developed the OS based on feedback from students, teachers, and school administrators around the world.

On March 7th the corporate veep of Microsoft's operating systems group, Joe Belfiore, tweeted the product would disappear and become a "mode" in Windows.

Leicester City deny Riyad Mahrez has retired after weird Facebook post
Leicester City winger Riyad Mahrez is keen on forcing through a move to Italian side Roma during the summer window, according to a report in the press.

"We use Windows 10's as an option for schools or companies who need a version for simple tasks, but with guaranteed performance".

Do you remember Windows 10 S? If you are an enterprise customer, you will be able to deploy Windows 10 Enterprise with S mode enabled.

It's also worth considering the timing of the next Windows 10 update, which probably means northern Autumn 2018. The Verge speculates that Microsoft might simply make the unlock process of the new "S Mode" more obvious so that customers will know immediately what version of the operating system they're running.

The positioning of Windows 10 S is a little odd right now. Windows 10 S users in an educational setting can now upgrade to Windows 10 Pro for free, but "a fee may apply" to everyone else.
