S Mode For Windows 10 Officially Confirmed By Microsoft

S Mode For Windows 10 Officially Confirmed By Microsoft

Microsoft is today releasing Windows 10 Build 17618 to the Windows Insiders opted into Skip Ahead, and unlike the previous releases, this new build brings a number of new features along with improvements. The new "S Mode" for Windows 10 will allow Microsoft to offer numerous same features as Windows 10 S without having to build and sell a separate line of products.

Belfiore didn't specify precisely how S Mode will function within the broader operating system when it arrives at some point next year, so we mostly have some leaked info from last month to go on here. Earlier this year, leaked reports detailed Microsoft's plan to discontinue Windows 10 S and launch Windows 10 "S Mode" in its place.

While Windows 10 S users can upgrade to any other version of Windows 10 but that would require them to pay some cash and only Win 10 Home upgrade is free. While the stated intentions of the operating system - improved performance, security and reliability - appear to benefit users, the reality of having no desktop apps still isn't suitable for most customers.

The Windows 10 S version was announced in 2017 as a lightweight version of its OS that could simplify low-end devices for the education market.

Developers will soon be able to tap into the computing resources of their PCs and edge devices, enabling hardware-accelerated AI models in Windows across a wide spectrum of devices with varying hardware configurations, Gallo explained.

This move means it will be easier for Microsoft to continue to offer Windows 10 S to users, while simplifying the upgrade path.

Given the prevalence of machine-learning and AI in all of our devices, Microsoft wanted to make sure its new framework would complement the wealth of devices out there. The confirmation came from Microsoft VP Joe Belfiore on Twitter.

When Microsoft introduced Windows 10S a year ago, I was deeply concerned.
