    Maybe Microsoft marketing claims it's a cross between R-oses and T-ulips, but my whiffer tells me it is actually between R-otten eggs and T-wo-week-old trout.

    Being serious for a moment. one of the things that MS touts as an advantage of S mode is better battery life.
    And we get that question lot from our customers. We have gone to great lengths to try and discover a scenario where that''s actually true and haven't succeeded.

    The only "case" we could find is that it prevents you from installing Chrome which absolutely does clobber the battery. :(

    There is a very slightly better case for S mode from a security standpoint. only because it prevents users from installing apps outside of the App Store.

    But that is far better done via active directory and inTune for corporate users.

    That is a strong reason that Windows 10X--on paper, anyway--is the real Windows 10 S that users will appreciate.
