  • Microsoft Previews New Privacy Screen For Windows Insiders

Last month, the rumor mill had it that Microsoft would release Windows 10 S as a mode for Windows 10, rather than a separate version.

Microsoft announced Windows 10 S previous year, the new version of Windows 10 was meant to compete with Chrome OS.

What do you think of Microsoft's decision to drop Windows 10 S entirely in favor of "S Mode"? News of this transition leaked back in early February, and now Microsoft's operating systems vice president, Joe Belfiore, has confirmed the change on Twitter. This brand new blueprint of things could also let Microsoft to push S Mode to larger mass, provided it should be achievable across most versions of Windows 10.

Microsoft released the second Windows 10 "Redstone 5" test build to those in the Skip Ahead ring on March 7. As with Windows 10 S, any consumers using a device with Windows 10 running in 10S mode will likely be able to unlock the full version for a price.

The operating system was rolled out in May 2017 as a stand-alone version of Microsoft's OS for desktop. S Mode will enable any Windows 10 PC to be toggled into the Windows 10 S sandbox. The AI platform in Windows 10, which will launch with the next major version of Windows, will make use of the GPU on your local machine and allows developers to run their models in real time and without the need for a round trip to the cloud. The majority of Windows 10 S products have been low-priced PCs aimed at education, where the ability to lockdown the platform is a welcome control for administrators.

There's also no clear indication of how Microsoft plans to advertise "S Mode" to ensure that people aren't being offered hidden fees out of the box.

Some recent estimates suggest Chrome OS now owns about 60% of the United States education market in grades K-12.
