free upgradeWindows 10 S was the version of Windows which was Streamlined for security and superior performance (as Microsoft said) but there is a huge catch. The users were allowed to use apps which are available only in the Microsoft Store. That wouldn’t have been a bad thing if the Microsoft Store had all the apps a user needed. But it doesn’t, last time I checked. This doesn’t necessarily mean that Windows 10 S is bad. In fact, it isn’t. Windows 10 S is the fastest and most secure version of Windows 10. It is just not aimed at the professional PC users. It is targeted at the Education sector which is more or less dominated by Chrome Books and Macbooks.

When Microsoft launched Windows 10 S they gave an option to the users to upgrade to Windows 10 Pro for free for a limited time, after which they had to pay 49$ to do the same. So the users were basically given a choice. A choice which they had to decide fast. Windows 10 S didn’t do well in the market and some reports pointed out that Windows 10 S is dead. But the truth is Windows 10 is nowhere near dead, it is only going to get more popular. The reason is that Microsoft now offers Windows 10 S with a lifetime free upgrade to Windows 10 Home. Earlier Windows 10 S was a separate version of Windows just like Windows 10 Home and Windows 10 Pro. But now Microsoft has made Windows 10 S as a layer on top of Windows 10 Home or Windows 10 Pro. So now Windows 10 S is not a separate version of Windows. Further details are posted on OUR FORUM.
