Microsoft says 'majority' of Windows 10 use will be 'streamlined S mode'

Windows 10 in "S mode" soon will be available in all Windows 10 editions, and Microsoft plans to drop a proposed charge for users wanting to switch from S mode. When the next Windows 10 update arrives, it'll be possible to buy a new Windows 10 PC with S mode, regardless of the edition.

Windows 10 S, in essence, was "Windows 10 Pro in S mode", as veteran Microsoft reporter Mary Jo Foley previously reported. In the post, Belfiore says Redmond received customer feedback that the "Windows 10 S" name was confusing to customers and partners. Joe Belfiore, Microsoft Vice President responsible for Windows, told about the upcoming changes.

This new approach is vastly different from Microsoft's original strategy.

Windows 10 Version 1507 and Version 1511 are now at "end of service".

"By offering multiple experiences to our Insiders, we're able to hear multiple points of view, along with preferences on the best set up experience that showcases privacy set up choices", Marisa Rogers, privacy officer for Microsoft's Windows & Devices Group, wrote yesterday in a blog post.

Liverpool end long wait for last eight
This will be the 170th meeting in league competition between these sides - Manchester United have won 67 to Liverpool's 55. I prefer to not play an English team, but I don't care who.

We expect the majority of customers to enjoy the benefits of Windows 10 in S mode.

The main cause is probably the shortage of apps in the Microsoft Store. Despite introduction on the expensive Surface Laptop shown above, Windows 10 S has primarily been found on low-priced machines for the education sector.

With the public availability of Windows 10 in S Mode, it would be easy for customers to take advantage of the security involved in the current technology arena.

At its Windows Developer Day event today, Microsoft said it will begin sharing the AI and machine learnings advances it has achieved in recent years as part of the Windows 10 platform to help third party-developers building new apps Windows apps. It can't be undone, and presumably that could be true for other Windows 10 editions.
