Windows 10 S just got axed

Krales  The Verge

As per latest estimates, for the first time, the newer version of the popular OS overtook the eight-year-old version. This is good news for those who are looking forward to seeing and using the new features of the productivity suite, but here's something you might want to take note of.

Other changes include Microsoft ending support for Office 365 ProPlus on January 14th 2020, for Windows 7, 8.1, Windows Server 2016 and older, and any Windows 10 Long Term Servicing Channel (LTSC). The short period between when Office 2019 comes out and when Windows 7 support ends - a year and a half, at most - may be why Microsoft chose to not support that OS and software together, Mangan said. Plus there is also the issue of familiarity, habit, and comfort that might see some users choose to skip the upgrade.

Microsoft now selling Surface Book 2 with 128GB storage for $1199
Last year, Consumer Reports removed its recommended rating on Surface devices including the Surface Pro tablet and the Surface Book.

The plan is reportedly to make S Mode available for most versions of Windows 10 (with new Core+ and Workstation variants being the exceptions). Like previous versions of Office, it will come with five years of standard support, but the extended support is being dropped from five extra years to just two.

Modern software not only provides new features to help people do their best work, but also new, more efficient manageability solutions and more comprehensive approaches to security. This means that only Windows 10 and Windows 10S users will be able to use the latest and greatest Office tools. "Software that is more than a decade old, and hasn't benefited from this innovation, is hard t secure and inherently less productive", they said.

Bon-Ton said it has partnered with third-party liquidator Hilco Merchant Resources, to help manage the closing stores' sales. The Bergner's store in Peru Mall is not among the 42 outlets stores that Bon-Ton Stores will be closing this year.

According to a report from StatCounter, a web analytics firm, in January 2018 Windows 10 surpassed the old favorite Windows 7 in terms of its install base. In raw numbers, Windows 10 has been installed on over 500 million devices as of last May, which is impressive, though still short of the one billion goal Microsoft's head of Windows and devices Terry Myerson predicted at Build 2015.

For Microsoft, it's a support nightmare. Instead, it'll have an extended support phase that's reduced by three years.

`Injured` de Villiers ruled out of first three India ODIs
That is also a rare event for India which is known for its traditionally weak bowling attacks while travelling on green pitches. The former Test player said that the team will try to win the first ODI in order gain confidence and set themselves on top.

It's clear that at the lower end of the hardware requirements, Microsoft is pushing Pro S as that can save OEMs up to $60 on a license and effectively push the fee on to the user as it costs $50 to upgrade from Pro S to Pro.
