Microsoft has just launched a radically different version of its Windows operating system. It’s being lined up as a direct competitor to Chrome OS – a simple, web-focused desktop operating system created by Google. The device runs Windows 10 S, a new version of Windows 10. In previous leaks, it’s been called Windows 10 Cloud OS.
Review on Microsoft Windows 10 S vs Windows 10
New Features added in Windows 10 S :
Microsoft-verified security : Your applications are delivered via the Windows Store ensuring Microsoft-verified security and integrity. Microsoft Edge is your default browser since it’s more secure than Chrome or Firefox.1 Windows Defender and all ongoing security features of Windows 10 are included.
Performance that lasts: Designed for superior performance that lasts, start-ups are quick and built to stay that way. With Microsoft Edge your online experience runs fast and safe. Stream HD video, switch across apps and stay productive on the go.
Familiar Windows 10 features, on a range of modern devices : Enjoy multi-tasking with snap, task view and virtual desktops. Get the suite of built-in apps and newest innovations like Cortana, Windows Ink and Windows Hello for password-free sign-on. Choose from a range of exciting modern devices coming soon.
Cloud convenience plus the power of apps : Windows 10 S integrates with OneDrive so files are saved to the cloud, in sync and accessible from your devices. Use compatible apps available from the Windows Store. If you need to use professional tools or would rather run non-Store apps, you can easily and affordably switch to Windows 10 Pro.
“Talent is everywhere but opportunity is not,” said Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella, whose main slogan at the launch event was ‘democratising educational opportunity’.
Newer, high-end machines, such as Microsoft’s Surface Book, will automatically receive the update ahead of others, as they should be better-equipped to deal with potential bugs.
