With the released of the Windows 10 S, Microsoft revealed that if you don’t like this free edition, you can easily upgrade to the full version, the Windows 10 Professional for $50.
Windows 10 S is a perfect optimized operating system for the education market. Besides, Microsoft also confirmed they would ship this Windows 10 version on their Surface laptop.
By using this edition, you only can download, install and use apps from the Windows Store. You can’t visit some specific websites and download your favorite apps.
All we know that Windows operating system is a nearly open operating system. That said, you can do anything you want with this operating system. However, it appears the Windows 10 S version isn’t for users who love open things.
Preventing users from downloading and installing apps from outside Windows Store is also a good thing to keep users’ computers safe. The reason is that all apps that submitted to Windows Store will be checked and reviewed to make sure they are safe. With this move, it appears Microsoft forces application maker to make another version for Windows Store.
However, if you don’t like to use this optimized Windows 10 version with many restrictions like that, you can easily upgrade to Windows 10 Professional edition with $50. In case you purchase a Surface laptop, you will be able to upgrade from Windows 10 S to Windows 10 Pro for free within the first year.
