Introduced with the Surface Laptop, Windows 10 S is a new take on the OS we all love. It's made to run more efficiently by only allowing apps from the Windows Store. Microsoft leaves a grace period for a free (for now) update to Windows 10 Pro for anyone who doesn't like the stripped-down OS.
Windows Central forum member ariez84 started a thread asking the question of whether or not all new laptops and tablets should come with Windows 10 S by default, as long as there is a six-month grace period to upgrade to either Home or Pro for free.
ariez84 listed a few reasons why this might be a good idea, including the idea that most people get their apps from the Windows Store anyway, and that it would help dispel the idea that Windows is full of viruses.
