Redmond software maker's OEM partners are already delivering notebooks powered by Windows 10 S, with an upgrade option to Windows 10 Pro. That's good news for actual adults, though I still question the viability of Windows 10 S, of course.

Microsoft today released a new Windows 10 preview for PCs with just five bug fixes. Very soon insiders may be treated with the Fall Creators update RTM build. Contrary to that event's educational bent, however, these machines are being positioned as business PCs for what Microsoft terms "firstline workers" but might better be known as "front-line" workers-the staff you meet on support lines or at service counters, who interface with the public.

First, be sure to review Windows 10 S Moves Tentatively Into the Enterprise for the basics: These PCs will be made by Fujitsu, HP, and Lenovo, and prices start at $275. At the time, I didn't know too much about those PCs, but now we have a bit more information. Microsoft 365 F1 also makes it easy to train and upskill employees, with Microsoft Stream to share dynamic role-based content and video, and SharePoint to easily distribute onboarding and training materials and manage institutional knowledge in one secure place. Microsoft 365 is a bundle of Windows 10, Office 365 and Microsoft's enterprise mobility and security services.

The Windows Insider team have been busy this week at Microsoft Ignite, but that doesn't mean that development on the forthcoming Fall Creators Update has slowed at all.
