Windows 10 in S Mode coming soon to all editions of Windows 10 - Windows Experience BlogWindows Experience Blog
Microsoftintroduced Windows 10 S Mode in 2017 in a bid to enhance the security of the operating system. Microsoft is contemplating a new "S Mode" for Windows 10 Home, Enterprise, and Pro versions of the OS. That rumor also stated that PCs with Windows 10 Home and Education in S Mode will be able to upgrade to Home for free, but Pro users will have to pay $49 to upgrade from Pro with S Mode to regular Pro. Belfiore called out the security, faster boot time, better battery life and consistent performance that Windows 10's S mode produces.
Microsoft announced Windows 10 S in 2017 as a lightweight version of its Windows 10 operating system, created to compete with Google's Chrome OS.
Some of you may have seen a discussion around our plans for Windows 10 S on Twitter today, and given some additional questions I've received, I thought it might be helpful to share more about our plans with Windows 10 S.
"We use Windows 10's as an option for schools or companies who need a version for simple tasks, but with guaranteed performance". 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. "Based on that feedback, we are simplifying the experience for our customers".
It remains unclear how turning Windows 10 S into a "mode" will alleviate customers' confusion. Belfiore says in his blog post that over 20 different devices have shipped with Windows 10 S pre-installed.
It's also worth considering the timing of the next Windows 10 update, which probably means northern Autumn 2018.
In Belfiore's official blog post, that rumor has been debunked: "If a customer does want to switch out of S mode, they will be able to do so at no charge, regardless of edition".
