'ello friends,

This is the first time I hear of S-mode, so I decided to dig a bit. 
Found an Arstechnica quote that gave me shivers:

 > First, a thing 10 S won't do: run command-line applications. CMD and
 > PowerShell, the two built-in Windows command-line interfaces, won't be
 > supported. Neither will the Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL) that
 > allows the use of Linux software on Windows. The rationale is that 
the > built-in command-line applications include dangerous tools (for
 > example, the diskpart partitioning program) that can break things, and
 > the Store has no third-party command-line tools at all. To keep
 > Windows 10 S protected against user error, they're all prohibited.
