Belfiore does not explicitly say whether Microsoft and its partners will stop selling machines with the old, separate version of Windows 10 S installed, nor does he offer a specific date for the release of the functionally-equivalent S Mode to Windows 10 Home and Windows 10 Pro users.

We haven't quite reached March's Patch Tuesday yet, but Microsoft is shipping a small cumulative update for PCs on the Windows 10 Creators Update (via Neowin). It will continue to work the same way as the dedicated Windows "10 S" OS was developed to do. Joe Belfiore, Microsoft Vice President responsible for Windows, told about the upcoming changes.

"If a customer does want to switch out of S mode, they will be able to do so at no charge, regardless of edition", Belfiore stated. Belfiore's blog post also lacks any details specific to Windows 10 S on Always Connected Windows PCs built around Qualcomm's ARM Snapdragon SoCs.

"By offering multiple experiences to our Insiders, we're able to hear multiple points of view, along with preferences on the best set up experience that showcases privacy set up choices", Marisa Rogers, privacy officer for Microsoft's Windows & Devices Group, wrote yesterday in a blog post. "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. Despite introduction on the expensive Surface Laptop shown above, Windows 10 S has primarily been found on low-priced machines for the education sector. The Verge speculates that Microsoft might simply make the unlock process of the new "S Mode" more obvious so that customers will know immediately what version of the operating system they're running. Moreover, it delivers predictable performance and quality with the help of Microsoft-verified apps via the Microsoft Store.

Windows 10 is created to be compatible with the hardware, software, and peripherals you already own.
