A locked-down OS has always been a great idea, but one that just can’t seem to catch fire outside of Group Policy.
Joe Belfiore has confirmed on Twitter that Windows 10 S will be pushed to a “mode” for standard Windows 10 builds next year instead of a standalone version delivered solely by OEMs. But, the more important piece is that it appears that Microsoft believes Windows 10 S still has value as an education solution.
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.
