We all know that Global PC sales are declining, and with more Chromebooks making their way to the market, its pushing pressure on the Windows 10 Consumers space. It’s not like Microsoft doesn’t know about it, and hence they first introduced Windows 10 S, which didn’t work, and later on turned it into a mode.
In a tweet yesterday, Belfiore, a corporate vice president in the Operating System Group within Windows said:
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.
He replied to PCWorld reporter’s when he couldn’t find much data mentioned when Joe shared that Microsoft has made a big push with Windows + Office + inexpensive PCs for the benefit of STUDENTS and TEACHERS, and it’s starting to show in a shift of PC sales.
It’s a good idea that Microsoft doesn’t want to do much promotion about Windows 10 S mode, but only keep it as a feature. Since a year away, I am guessing that Microsoft introduces this as a dedicated feature where with a flick of a button, one can get into the super smooth mode. As of now, Microsoft is only doing a transition for whatever damage that’s already created. We will know SOON.
