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

Haha!

IIRC, Windows 10 S was initially touted as a viable version of Windows for schools and institutes of learning; the reasoning being that these places need a 'dumbed down' (locked walled garden) version of Windows, there's a demand for it so Microsoft thought it was a good opportunity to eat into Apple iPads' market share.

I guess probably very few schools want it, and as a face-saving gesture, the PR spin monkeys sought to get all Windows 10 users to partake of this 'feature'. No retreat, just a doubling down on idiocy.
