Microsoft announces AI Platform for developers coming to Windows 10

It does appear that some features of Sets, as Microsoft calls its tabs, will appear in the next Windows 10 update later this year.

Word broke a month ago that Microsoft was planning to bake an "S Mode" into Windows 10.

Microsoft has just released the Windows 10 SDK Preview Build 17110, which developers can now use in conjunction with the Windows 10 Insider build 17110 or greater. Reports surfaced recently that Microsoft would combine Windows 10 S and Windows 10, making the former a "mode" of the Windows 10 OS.

Microsoft is revamping Windows 10 S, its version of Windows 10 customized for students, from a standalone operating system to a version of Windows 10.

The confirmation wouldn't surprise anyone since the operating system was never appreciated by Windows 10 users.

Key's reaction to Peele's Oscar win will make you feel things
He cited Whoopi Goldberg's 1991 speech for her best supporting actress Oscar win for Ghost as being "a huge inspiration to me". Peele's victory was the only win for his film, which was also nominated for best picture , best actor and best director .

Tabs in File Explorer, along with the new and improved Sets feature is available with Windows 10 Redstone 5 build 17618 to those part of Skip Ahead in the Windows Insider program. The big catch with Windows 10 S? They need to clarify every single angle to the customers regarding the move, like specifically which devices will have the default enabling of S Mode, and so on.

Recent estimates have stated that Chrome OS accounts for about 60% of the U.S. education market in grades K-12.

It is yet unknown if Microsoft will make "S Mode" available for free, or users will have to pay a fee before being able to switch their current OS into "S Mode".

In a recent post on Twitter, Microsoft executive Joe Belfiore wrote that "We use Wind10S as an option for schools or businesses that want the "low-hassle"/guaranteed performance version..." This is exactly how the lightweight Chrome OS works, which also limits users to installing apps from Google's Chrome Web Store and Play Store only. "Next year 10S will be a "mode" of existing versions, not a distinct version".
