Microsoft To Roll Out “S Mode” For Windows 10 Home, Pro And Enterprise

Microsoft has been supporting Windows 10 with new updates that bring new features and security to the operating system now it seems that Microsoft plans to roll out S Mode for Windows 10 Home, Pro, and Enterprise that would potentially convert the OS to Window 10 S but, without the removal of 32-bit components.

Windows 10 S was rolled out last year to provide the users an experience focused on security and performance and it seems that Microsoft is looking to provide these features to Windows 10 Home, Pro, and Enterprise users.

The clue that Microsoft intends to roll out an S Mode for Windows 10 home, Pro and Enterprise making them Windows 10 S, comes from the Bug Bash for the upcoming Redstone 4 update for Windows 10. One of the quests for the Bug Bash was to convert a PC to Windows 10 in S Mode.

What S Mode will do is that it will lock down the 32 Bit side of the Operating System, essentially stopping Win32 apps from running on your PC.

Furthermore, a report has made its way on the internet suggesting Microsoft is working on new version of Win 10 codenamed “Polaris”.

Polaris is not the next iteration of Windows but is a brand new version of Windows 10 for desktop PCs. 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”.

Also, Win 10 has finally surpassed Windows 7 in global market share. In January 2018 Windows 10 surpassed the old favorite Windows 7 in terms of its install base. The report suggests that Windows 10 represents 42.78% of Desktop using the new OS with Windows 7 following closely with a 41.86% of Desktop market share.

This is the first time since Windows 10 launch that this OS has surpassed Win 7 in terms of Market Share.
