    IMHO Windows 10 S should be free and MS should strive to strive to get revenue through the App Store and other services. I mean, free even to download and install in whatever compatible computer.

    Whoever need the Pro version could install it and upgrade for a fee.

    Design should be an all encompassing effort. From hardware and software to business model.

    It needs a different business model around it that makes sense out of its constraints in relationship with the way people are used to Windows.

    Personally I think people might choose Windows 10 S because they like the Windows experience and there is still very much a mentality that productivity tools equates to Office 360. Yes this looks a lot like Windows RT, but one here has the full power of a PC under the hood.

    PS: I don't get all the fuss about Chrome, I honestly don't.
