Microsoft will be replacing the Windows 10 S with an "S Mode" for Windows 10 Home, Pro and Enterprise versions, however, the company didn't reveal when it will be releasing until now as Microsoft has revealed that Windows 10 S Mode will be coming in 2019.

Thankfully, it seems Microsoft has come to its senses. Futuresource reported that Google's Chromebooks continue to dominate the USA school market, with a 59.6 percent share in the fourth quarter of 2017, but added that Microsoft has seen growing adoption through its expanding lineup of lower-cost, education-focused Windows devices. The majority of Windows 10 S products have been low-priced PCs aimed at education, where the ability to lockdown the platform is a welcome control for administrators.
