Windows 10's next major update includes an AI platform

Windows 10 S will only use App Store UWP packages and will use it as a walled garden for Windows 10, aimed primarily at the Chromebook market, that is to say, budget-conscious consumers and the education sector. Released to Insiders yesterday, the latest preview version of Windows 10 also fixes a number of existing bugs that cause the operating system to load incorrectly or crash.

Since releasing Windows 10 in July 2015, Microsoft has been criticized for the amount of data the operating system collects about users and sends back to the company for analysis.

Belfiore didn't specify precisely how S Mode will function within the broader operating system when it arrives at some point next year, so we mostly have some leaked info from last month to go on here. Whereas Windows 10 S is a standalone operating system, S Mode will be an optional feature for regular Windows 10 editions.

Belfiore, in a tweet on Wednesday, said, "Next year, 10 S will be a "mode" of existing versions, not a distinct version".

The Syrian government, through the SANA state news agency, denied using chemical weapons in its eastern Ghouta offensive. In remarks broadcast on state television on Sunday, Syrian President Bashar al-Assad said his forces would push on.

While Microsoft will be abandoning Windows 10 S but, it will not abandon its Windows '10 S users as Microsoft will be giving free Win 10 Home upgrade to Windows 10 S Users.

Windows 10 S was built to compete against Chrome OS in the education market, but it has not gathered much market share in the U.S. and Canada compared to Chrome OS, regular Windows devices and iPads. And I'm sure marketing departments will pick up on Belfiore's comments about "guaranteed performance version" and push 10S as a positive. In addition, Windows 10 Pro users having the mode enabled will need to pay $49 for acquiring access to the full version of the 10 Pro. Stay tuned with us to know more on this. Chrome OS and Chromebooks proved popular in the education market, both because of the comparatively low price and ease of use.

These models then make use of the silicon that's available to them in any given machine, which most likely means a DirectX 12 graphics card or, if that's not available, the CPU.
