New security features and limits on what you can load and customize promise to make Microsoft Windows 10 S the more secure version ever. It might not be for everyone, though. Windows 10 S mode is Microsoft’s new secure platform. Its goal is to provide the familiar Windows 10 interface with a much more restricted software deployment process. Consider Windows 10 S similar to the Apple iPhone and iPad ecosystem: All applications must be deployed through a vetted deployment process. Windows 10 S can also be used to deploy systems in kiosk mode and in limited-use needs. You purchase Windows 10 S for new machines, or you can image and use it in deployment on Pro and Enterprise versions. You can change from Windows 10 S to Pro or Enterprise versions with appropriate licensing. Currently, you can’t flip back and forth between Windows 10 S and the more traditional Pro or Enterprise versions. Note I said “currently,” as I think the future of Windows is heading toward a version of the software that can be opened up for purposes of deployment and then locked down into a restricted version that malware and malicious software can’t easily exploit. read more on our Forum.
