Windows 10 S is Microsoft’s answer to Chrome OS: it’s a lightweight operating system that can run on entry-level or high-end hardware, with particular attention to security and ease of use rather than support for a wider range Of third-party applications. A key difference that distinguishes Windows 10 S from Chrome OS is, however, the ability to upgrade to Windows 10 Pro in just one click without being forced to buy a new device.
