When Microsoft announced Windows 10 S, one of a categorical distinctions from vanilla Windows 10 was that usually Windows Store applications would run on a education-focused OS. But it turns out when Microsoft pronounced that “applications are delivered around a Windows Store,” it didn’t meant that all Windows Store applications would work on 10 S, as remarkable by Lilliputing.
In a blog post on MSDN today, Rich Turner, a Senior Product Manager during Microsoft, simplified that certain applications won’t be authorised to run on Windows 10 S, including “all command-line apps, shells and consoles.”
Regrettably, that means that Ubuntu, SUSE Linux, and Fedora — a Linux distros that are entrance to a Windows Store — won’t be available to run on Windows 10 S. As Turner explains, a Linux distros, even yet distributed by a store, have some-more entrance to a complement than a customary Universal Windows Program on a store — essentially, they’re command-line collection that work outward a sealed sandbox that Microsoft boundary many Windows Store apps to.
According to Turner’s post, Windows 10 S is essentially directed during “non-technical users” who don’t wish or need that kind access, and privately isn’t designed for app developers or IT administrators who need some-more modernized control over their machines. To be clear: there’s no technical reason that a Linux distros from a store can’t run on Windows 10 S, aside from a choice by Microsoft to extent that option, and anyone using a 10 S device that chooses to ascent to a full chronicle of Windows 10 will immediately be means to implement a Windows Store-distributed versions.
