Windows 10 S Mode expected to hit all Windows 10 editions soon

Joe Belfiore, Microsoft Corporate Vice President, has officially confirmed on Twitter that Windows 10 in S Mode will be rolled out to all editions of Windows 10 next year.

Anyone who has tried to disable automatic updates in Windows 10 knows how much of a pain it is.

Belfiore goes on to say that his employer expects the "majority of customers to enjoy the benefits of Windows 10 in S Mode".

Turkey FM: Turkey and Iraq Will Carry Out Joint Operations Against Kurds
The PKK is a threat posed not only to Baghdad but also to the Iraqi Kurdish administration in the north of the country, he added. The joint operation with Iraqi army may start after the elections in Iraq scheduled for May 12.

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. "Windows 10 Spring Creators Update" has been spotted in the latest test builds of the Redstone 5 update expected to be released later this fall. "If a customer does want to switch out of it, they will be able to do so at no charge, regardless of edition", the blog post added. This would break one of the rules of S-mode, which only allows Universal Windows Platform (UWP) apps, which is supposed to enable the "guaranteed performance" that Belfiore speaks of, including better battery life. If you are an enterprise customer, you will be able to deploy Windows 10 Enterprise with S mode enabled. That should clear up any confusion around unlocking the full version of Windows, and now it is up to PC makers to decide whether to sell machines with S Mode enabled or not. 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.

Download Windows 10 Pro here first, after you installed it, then to activate the code. It can't be undone, and presumably that could be true for other Windows 10 editions.
