A large fraction of the TeX community has already rejected Windows.   The
group most at risk is students who either choose the cheapest "Windows
laptop" in the store or are encouraged by their school to purchase a
configuration that provides S-mode.

A user of Microsoft R Open (MRO) was informed it is not and will not be
for Windows 10 S: https://github.com/Microsoft/microsoft-r-open/issues/65

There will be a long list of widely used cross-platform apps that will not
available on Windows 10 S.  Proponents of alternative OS's should be
working ensure their OS can be used on systems being sold with Win 10 S.
Then cross-platform apps can mention this option.
