Microsoft Confirms Windows 10 "S Mode"

Microsoft Previews New Privacy Screen For Windows Insiders MS Executive Confirms 'Mode' Rumor about Windows 10 S

Microsoft today announced its AI Platform for Windows developers, a new set of tools that will soon help developers to bring the machine learning models they trained in the cloud to their desktop apps.

During the initial release of the operating system that would soon become Windows 10 S mode, Microsoft made partnerships with a number of laptop manufacturers that would offer their own take on an low-priced laptop that is optimized for tasks like education and other basic computing needs. Microsoft's latest OS collects some data for personalisation and product improvement, as it is a mixture of software and services.

It's not clear why exactly Microsoft is going this route. This new version of Windows 10 is built upon the UWP which makes it "Microsoft's first truly modern Windows OS for the traditional PC form factor".

Obviously, all of this stuff works better on modern hardware.




Microsoft has gotten into some hot water in the European Union over its Windows 10 privacy policy and the general way in which it presents (or doesn't present) users with the options they need to turn off tracking.

PC World contacted him to seek clarification on why Microsoft hadn't included any info on the Windows 10 S version in its blog posts. Futuresource reported that Google's Chromebooks continue to dominate the US school market, with a 59.6 percent share in the fourth quarter of 2017, but added that Microsoft has seen growing adoption through its expanding lineup of lower-cost, education-focused Windows devices. The new development, which was initially a part of the rumour mill, has now been confirmed by Microsoft VP Joe Belfiore. "I think it's totally fine/good that it's not mentioned".

Microsoft managed to reel in a number of manufacturer partners ahead of its Windows 10 S announcement. If these PCs are just running regular Windows with a modified Windows 10 S Mode, are they really similar to the low-priced devices that Google has been able to offer?
