Windows 10 S

Noticing the success of the Chromebook in the Education Sector Microsoft is introducing the Windows 10 S to compete, mainly on price. Windows 10 S is a Restricted version of Windows 10 Pro that only allows Windows store software on it. Other caveats are the only Web Browser is the 'Edge' and 'Bing' is locked in as the search engine, not Google. All this is similar to the failed Windows 8 RT. If this is found too limiting a payment of $US 50 will upgrade it to Windows 10 Pro. If the Education Sector don't buy these they will probably end up on the retail shelves as cheap PC's. These are not copies of the Chromebook as both operate and maintain on completely different ideologies.
