Microsoft may have stuck to its script Tuesday when it unveiled a Windows 10 spin-off aimed at the K-12 educational market, but the new operating system will be enticing to businesses as well, analysts said today.
“They were very focused on Windows 10 S as an education play, but no question, this will also appeal to enterprises,” said Carolina Milanesi of Creative Strategies.
Microsoft yesterday announced Windows 10 S — the “S” isn’t a placeholder for something specific, the company maintained — for school settings. The operating system is Windows 10, but comes with important restrictions, the most notable that users can only install and run apps from Microsoft’s Windows Store. This summer, Microsoft will begin testing a version of its Office suite that will be available from the store in September.
