Microsoft says 'majority' of Windows 10 use will be 'streamlined S mode'

I have two major application suites and an old piece of hardware which require Windows.The hardware will be replaced by, at latest, the end of the year (it really is quite elderly) and the software will be run from a VM under macOS or some Linux distro, a VM which will have no Internet connectivity. I want to see how Windows deals with a total inability to update, ever, and thus to download whatever idiocy Microsoft thinks up next, because it simply can't call home. Ever.
