In the next major Windows 10 update, AI will play center stage

The executive also said that the Windows 10 S mode would be released in 2019.

Microsoft has confirmed today that it's going to discontinue Windows 10 S as a separate iteration of its platform and instead offer it as a new "S Mode" in existing Windows 10 versions starting next year. The new development, which was initially a part of the rumour mill, has now been confirmed by Microsoft VP Joe Belfiore.

Around a year ago, Microsoft released their Windows 10 S operating system - meant to be a direct competitor to the Google Chrome Operating System.

The end goal with this new platform inside of Windows 10 is two-pronged; make it easier to build high-quality apps for Windows but also to introduce developers to Azure's ML/AI capabilities. That rumor also stated that PCs with Windows 10 Home and Education in S Mode will be able to upgrade to Home for free, but Pro users will have to pay $49 to upgrade from Pro with S Mode to regular Pro. It should function in the same way as the Windows 10 S operating system that's now available. The news is a logical next step for the still-young Windows 10 S concept. It will be much simpler, and quicker, for a Windows 10 S user to switch to Home or Pro, as they will already have that operating system installed. In case it is only for the PC users, things will remain confusing as a mixed amount of devices might get shipped with the mode enabled.

This was obvious from past year because Microsoft non-coincidentally announced Windows 10 S at the MicrosoftEDU Event held in NY last May. "Next year 10S will be a "mode" of existing versions, not a distinct version. SO ..."

Many wrote the OS off as the modern version of Windows RT - in other words, it wouldn't last.

Windows 10 S saw a limited release on Microsoft Surface Laptop and other budget laptops.
