Citing new data from the United Kingdom -based research consultancy Futuresource, Microsoft yesterday also highlighted the growing use of Windows 10 devices in K-12 education. If you didn't think too hard about it, it kind of sounded like a good idea: A lightweight version of regular Windows 10, designed for systems without a ton horsepower, and a potentially competitive alternative to affordable Chromebooks, which have become a big hit and in the education market.
The messaging on the software was always a bit messy, though, and the company didn't really do itself any favors by launching it on the high-end Surface Laptop.
As part of its latest Developer Day event, Microsoft announced a new AI platform coming in the next version of Windows 10. Understandably, it's been a bit hard to determine how to classify what's essentially functioned as a forked version of the company's broader OS.
Microsoft is as well planning to introduce the S Mode for Windows 10 Home, Enterprise and the Pro versions of the OS. It will be doing away with Windows 10S as a separate, distinct version of Windows, and instead will roll out its functionality into an optional mode built into the OS starting in 2019. S Mode will enable any Windows 10 PC to be toggled into the Windows 10 S sandbox. WinML APIs will be made available on all editions on Windows 10.
Say goodbye to Windows 10 S as a standalone SKU and hello to S Mode in Windows 10. Stay tuned with us to know more on this.

This was obvious from a year ago because Microsoft non-coincidentally announced Windows 10 S at the MicrosoftEDU Event held in NY last May.
Recent estimates have stated that Chrome OS accounts for about 60% of the USA education market in grades K-12. The third benefit that Microsoft pointed out is rather obvious, and that's flexibility, since developers can now choose whether to process this data on the device, or in the cloud.
Windows 10 S is eerily similar to Chrome OS.
"We use Win10S as an option for schools or businesses that want the "low-hassle"/ guaranteed performance version", Microsoft executive Joe Belfiore wrote in a post on Twitter.
