Microsoft says 'majority' of Windows 10 use will be 'streamlined S mode'

Richard Crossley


I can see this being a fail.

My folks, octogenarians, they've been using PCs for about 15 years. Windows 2000 and Windows XP. Imagine they go to the store, I'll be generous and say John Lewis and purchase a new desktop with Windows 10 and S mode deployed out of the box.

They set this up and try and run their beloved "Spider", some card game that I can't fathom but made by Microsoft. The version in the App Store is the current version, but not the one *THEY* want.

Since this doesn't do what they want my guess would be to return it, because:

1) It's new

2) Doesn't meet the requirements

3) I'm not going to talk them through some random Windows 10 SNAFU, because it will be complicated

4) I'm not getting a plane and flying a 12,000 mile round trip to fix MS Windows and MS aren't going to repay my time/costs
