A few days ago, Microsoft VP Joe Belfiore has verified the reports that Windows 10S will no longer be a standalone software. As the company allows users to use this platform as a “mode” within existing full Windows 10 installations.

Microsoft designed Windows 10 S to give a tough competition to its one of the biggest competitor Chrome OS, which is a lightweight, more powerful and even more secure operating system.

But, the company missed something that they desired to implement in the Windows 10 S. Therefore, the company made it compulsory for users to get a copy of Windows 10 Pro if they want to use Windows 10 S.

The company is yet to post more details about this. According to the rumors, S Mode will be accessible on all versions of Windows excluding the Core+ and Workstation.

Therefore, the cost will also increase if the user upgraded from S mode to full access depending on the current version of Windows a user is running. For some users, it  will be free but, for others they would have to pay a fee of $49.

Well, we donot have any officila statement about the release of this new version in Windows 10. But, according to a tweet from Belfiore, it can take place “next year”, so we will update you here once we get some details about the release date.
