The end goal with this new platform inside of Windows 10 is two-pronged; make it easier to build high-quality apps for Windows but also to introduce developers to Azure's ML/AI capabilities.
Both operating systems -Windows 10 S and Chrome OS- were marketed and became popular due to the restrictions they place on users and the level of control central administrators can have over notebooks deployed among students, professors, or employees, limiting their ability to use the devices for non-work-related tasks.

We're excited about the new Windows 10 update coming this spring that will deliver these new privacy set up experiences.
Putin says he wished USSR did not collapse
President Putin rebuffed accusations by Western media outlets that he was starting a new arms race. Putin made the comment during an interview with NBC's Megyn Kelly on Thursday.
According to the site, 60 percent of buyers stuck with Windows 10 S upon purchase. Nevertheless, those who possess Windows 10 Pro in S Mode would have to pay 49 dollars in order to unlock the full version.
Microsoft is testing this feature with its Windows Insiders today, and the company still hasn't committed to when we'll see tabs broadly across Windows 10.
The operating system was rolled out in May 2017 as a stand-alone version of Microsoft's OS for desktop. Neowin spotted last month that Microsoft wants to offer this "S Mode" on PCs running Windows 10 Home, Enterprise, and Pro.
Recent estimates have stated that Chrome OS accounts for about 60% of the U.S. education market in grades K-12.
However, at least in the EU, Microsoft would have to obtain consent if the data was used in any other way than mentioned or if it wasn't clear to the user that the data would be used for more than just finding the device. "Next year 10S will be a "mode" of existing versions, not a distinct version".
