Last month, a report surfaced indicating Microsoft would soon depart its motion to attain Windows 10 S as a dedicated operating system and switch over to a more versatile ‘S Mode’ that would lock down full versions of Windows 10 for low-end hardware. Now, we’re hearing official confirmation that this change is taking place next year, according to Microsoft VP Joe Belfiore.
We use Win10S as an option for schools or businesses that want the ‘low-hassle’/ guaranteed performance version. Next year 10S will be a “mode” of existing versions, not a distinct version. SO … I think it’s totally fine/good that it’s not mentioned.

While we don’t get any details surrounding the new mode or what it’ll be called (we’ll refer to it as S Mode here at Matridox), at least we know the change is coming. We expect to know more in the future so stay tuned.
