Windows 10 S a Flop? Becoming a 'Mode' in 2019

Windows 10 S a Flop? Becoming a 'Mode' in 2019

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. That is why the Redmond giant has chose to include Windows 10 S in every Windows 10 version through a special S Mode which will arrive with an upcoming update.

Past year we introduced Windows 10 S - an effort to provide a Windows experience that delivers predictable performance and quality through Microsoft-verified apps via the Microsoft Store.

The Windows 10 S is an attempt made by Microsoft to enhance Windows experience. This week, Microsoft Windows Corporate VP Joe Belfiore addressed those rumors with a blog post.

This new approach is vastly different from Microsoft's original strategy. 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. It was a more restricted version of Windows 10 that only allowed apps from the Windows Store to be installed.

We're fairly certain that the majority of Windows 10 users still won't be satisfied with S Mode if it precludes the use of their favorite software.

It's also worth noting that there are now no known issues with Windows 10 build 17115.

The blog post also lacks details about what current Windows 10 S machine owners can expect in the future. Futuresource reported that Google's Chromebooks continue to dominate the US school market, with a 59.6 percent share in the fourth quarter of 2017, but added that Microsoft has seen growing adoption through its expanding lineup of lower-cost, education-focused Windows devices. It can't be undone, and presumably that could be true for other Windows 10 editions.
