Citing new data from the United Kingdom -based research consultancy Futuresource, Microsoft yesterday also highlighted the growing use of Windows 10 devices in K-12 education. Next year 10S will be a "mode" of existing versions, not a distinct version. SO ... READ NEXT:Apple could abandon iPhone X notch amid "sluggish demand" Microsoft planned to work on Windows 10 S consumer hardware with its partners but few devices have actually launched.

Microsoft is today releasing Windows 10 Build 17618 to the Windows Insiders opted into Skip Ahead, and unlike the previous releases, this new build brings a number of new features along with improvements.

The confirmation came via the tweet you see above by Joe Belfiore, Corporate Vice President in the Operating Systems Group at Microsoft.

"I think we have arrived at the point where we have maturity and we know exactly the expectation from the manager and how he wants us to play football".

Windows 10 S users who require more features, and the ability to run desktop programs can upgrade to Windows 10 Pro via the Windows Store. A spiritual successor to RT, the operating system is a slimmed down version of Windows 10 with added security (by way of locked down app installs) and lower hardware requirements created to be run on sub-$300 systems that can be purchased in bulk by schools.

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". 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. "Windows can perform AI evaluation tasks using the local processing capabilities of the PC, enabling real-time analysis of large local data such as images and video", the company explained.

That's not something that Microsoft has confirmed as yet. Chrome OS has also been expanded to higher-end devices, giving these same audiences the option to opt for more power with devices such as the Google Pixelbook.
