Windows 10 S: A Windows Enterprise in waiting?

A couple of weeks ago I bought a Surface Laptop because I wanted to spend some time using Windows 10 S.
It has been an interesting experience.
Irsquo;ve learned a great deal about Microsoftrsquo;s latest operating systemmdash;and its prospects as a tool for the enterprise.Windows 10 S is a variant of the familiar Windows 10 Pro, but locked down to work only with Windows Store applications and to prevent local scripting tools and system-level commands from running.

There is no access to cmd.exe, no PowerShell, no RegEdit, and certainly no Bash prompt, all aimed at reducing the risk of a user changing device configuration or getting around the operating systemrsquo;s restrictions.

They werenrsquo;t virtual machines or dual-boot systems, and I didnrsquo;t have to go through the usual route of finding download pages and uncompressing installer files.
Instead, I went to the Windows Store, searched for Linux, picked the distros I wanted, and clicked Install for each. Once theyrsquo;d downloaded, all I needed to do was open a terminal window and add a username and password; I was ready to go.It was all possible because Irsquo;m running the latest preview build of the upcoming Windows 10 Fall Creators Update, which has added new features to the Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL).
Introduced in the Windows 10 Anniversary Update (version 1609) and significantly updated in the recently released Windows 10 Creators Update (version 1703), WSL is part of Microsoftrsquo;s answer to the question “How do we get developers using Windows again?”To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here
