Microsoft announced a new operating system called Microsoft Windows 10 S, designed to give a taste of how the familiar work environment will operate as an enclosed 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, which offers far fewer restrictions for the consumer - speed and safety, when the argument was that a more modern environment in which Microsoft Office Controlling much better will allow computers to reach their full potential, and also be protected "from all known damages". Not bad, for a system that should also be slightly cheaper than the full 10 windows.
Now it's time for the launch of the flagship product for the system, the prestigious Surface Laptop - and meanwhile it seems that the promises and declarations of the giant company are not quite what we thought: Windows 10S is not necessarily faster than Windows 10, nor is it really perfectly immune in its security aspect.
After several reviews indicated that no speed of action was observed and improved response atWindows 10 S compared toWindows 10 Pro (to which the Surface Laptop can be "upgraded" at a one-time cost of $ 50), it turned out that the practical intention 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 installing a large number of software and applications may create a large number of active processes that will rob the available RAM in the system and a large amount of unnecessary information stored in storage drives that will lead to a relative slowdown in operation - which should be avoided.Windows 10 S Thanks to the increased control. This may be true for some consumers, but apparently those experienced knew how to ensure that their system would work "like new" in any situation, thus 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 10S actually went, and enlisted the help of the CEO of an information security company - who proved in just three hours that the improved protection of the operating system, which comes due to the inability to run various predefined scripts and applications such as PowerShell that allows them to be created, is absolutely imperfect.
Using Word's programmed macros, the standard version downloaded and run from the "allowed" application store, provided access to all critical areas of the system, with the ability to run pre-made malicious codes, and although Microsoft denied the results and did not contradict the original statement. No "known today" damage will operate on Windows 10S - It's pretty clear that it's only a matter of time until we see real malicious attempts to use the system, maybe just to be the first to succeed in the mission and 'win' the 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 10S only exist under very specific conditions, and it is not certain that they justify the compromises that consumers are required to make in order to enjoy them - such as the ability to choose the browser they will use, for example.
To-Windows 10S has a chance of surviving in the market, it seems, but mostly as a system for educational institutions and other locations where widespread public use is expected - but in the meantime there does not seem to be too many justifiable reasons to market it to average home consumers, as a practical alternative to the real thing. Between the two options is about $ 50 "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.
