Microsoft announced a new operating system called Microsoft Windows 10 S, designed to give you a taste of how the workspace is recognized as a closed garden where there is only one controlled way to add applications - through the company's official built-in store.
At the launch, we've heard about a couple of key advantages of the new system across Windows The standard and familiar 10, which offers far less restrictions for the consumer - speed and safety, claiming to be a more modern environment Microsoft Office Controlling much better will allow computers to realize their potential, and also be protected "from all known damage". Not bad, for a system that should also be slightly cheaper than the full 10 windows.
Now it's time for the flagship product launch for the system, the prestigious Surface Laptop - and in the meantime, the giant's promises and statements don't seem to be exactly what we thought: Windows 10 S is not necessarily faster than Windows 10, nor is it really immune to its security aspect.
After several reviews indicated that no speed of action was observed and improved response atWindows 10 S compared toWindows 10 Pro (which can be "upgraded" to the one-time 50 dollar Surface Laptop), it turned out to be the practical intent of Microsoft Office Was that the closed system could be faster in the long run because of the different way application installations are made from the App Store Microsoft Office Compared to standard operating system installations.
The argument is that after a while and a large number of software and applications are installed, a large number of active processes can be created that will be stolen from the available RAM in the system and a large amount of unnecessary information stored on the storage drives that will cause a slowdown in operation - which should be avoided byWindows 10 S thanks to the increased control. This may be true for some consumers, but apparently those who are experienced will know that their system will work "like new" in every situation, making the original announcement of Microsoft Office Was inaccurate, perhaps even misleading.
If this is not enough, ZDnet has decided to test Microsoft's claim to Microsoft's immunity Windows In fact, 10 S has gone to the aid of an information security chief executive - who has shown in just three hours that the improved operating system protection, which comes from the lack of the ability to run various predefined scripts and applications such as PowerShell, is imperfect.
Using the programmed macros of the Word application, in its standard version downloaded and run from the "allowed" application store, gave access to all critical areas of the system, with the ability to run pre-prepared malicious codes, and although Microsoft violated the results and claimed that they did not contradict the statement No "known today" damage to work on Windows 10 S - It's pretty clear that it's only a matter of time before we see real malicious attempts to use the system, perhaps just to be the first to succeed and "win" Microsoft Office, And perhaps on the assumption that this is an easy and convenient target, when users of this version may be less aware and complacent about the various security risks that are available to them on the network.
Bottom line, it seems that the outstanding advantages of Windows 10 S exists only under very specific conditions, and it is not certain that they justify the compromises that consumers need to make in order to enjoy them - such as the ability to choose the browser to use, for example.
To-Windows 10 S is likely to survive in the market, it seems, but mainly as a system for educational and educational institutions and other places where widespread public use is expected - but for now, there seems to be too many justifiable reasons to market it to average home end consumers, as a viable alternative to the real thing, especially when the difference Between the two options is about 50 dollars "only", and no more.
Agree with us, or think that there is actually a very good opportunity to extend the relevance of the operating system? This is the time to express your opinion.
