You'll soon be able to upgrade from Windows 10 S for free

Windows 10 is a personal computer operating system developed and released by Microsoft as part of the Windows NT family of operating systems. Instead of a distinct Windows 10 S version, there will instead be an S Mode for Windows. Because of this close similarity to Windows 10 Pro, Microsoft has offered an upgrade from 10 S to 10 Pro for those who want to lift the restrictions. The update comes with new refinements to the mail app for all Windows 10 users. It is a light version of the operating system announced by Microsoft about 10 months ago which can only run apps from Microsoft Store.

As many have pointed out, this naming convention is confusing and not only because "Spring" isn't the same worldwide. Microsoft seems intent on staying with the "Creators" theme for Windows 10, at this point.

"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.

Microsoft's Windows 10 S FAQ has explained that switching from Windows 10 S to Windows 10 Pro is a one-way switch.

However, PCWorld senior editor Mark Hachman noted in a tweet yesterday that Futuresource's report did not specifically mention Windows 10 S. When it released Windows 10 S past year, Microsoft said it had developed the OS based on feedback from students, teachers, and school administrators around the world. Or is it merely a reminder that Windows 10 version 1709 includes additional protective features that previous versions don't include? That change is now official, and Joe Belfiore, corporate vice president for Windows, has provided further details on how S Mode will work in the future.
