What is windows 10s ?
S is a new version of the Windows 10 operating system that started last year. Windows 10-S mode was introduced for the first Surface Laptop and OS was mainly designed, for students and teachers. However, Microsoft has now decided to apply S mode for all versions of Windows 10 devices.
Joe Belfiore, Corporate Vice President of Windows mentions about Windows 10 S in his blog:
“(Windows 10 S is) an effort to provide a Windows experience that delivers predictable performance and quality through Microsoft-verified apps via the Microsoft Store. This configuration was offered initially as part of the Surface Laptop and has been adopted by our customers and partners for its performance and reliability”. – source
What to do in order to use the new version?
A rumor spreads that Microsoft , 10 home users are planning to set up free mode S mode, but 10 Pro customers will be forced to pay $ 49 for their active S-mode, which can be found in the full version of Windows 10. Microsoft hasn’t confirmed this aspect of the new “S Mode” changes, and if the switch isn’t coming until 2019 then those details probably haven’t been fined tuned just yet.
Microsoft will need to be careful with its approach to a new S Mode for Windows 10, particularly with what devices will ship locked down by default. If the choice is left to PC partners then we could be looking at a mixed amount of devices shipping with S Mode enabled next year and potential confusion unless the move is explained well to consumers.
