A while ago, Microsoft launched Windows 10 in S Mode, a new SKU of Windows which is limited to the Microsoft Store. Windows 10 S was Microsoft’s another attempt to make Windows a lighter operating system. After Windows 10 S, the company is now reportedly working on Windows Lite.

According to Petri, like Windows 10 S, this particular OS version will be a secure flavour of Windows 10 because it will run apps downloaded from the Microsoft Store.

The name “Lite” was originally spotted in Windows 10 19H1 Insider builds and it is said to run UWPs and PWAs from the Store. Windows Lite will be pre-installed on select devices and it’s likely that this particular operating system won’t be for all consumers, enterprises or even small businesses.

Windows Lite is based on the long rumoured Windows Core OS and it will strip even more legacy components from the OS to make it faster and lighter. Windows Lite will coexist with the current versions of Windows 10 and it will be suitable to run on different chipset architectures such as Snapdragon processor.

As it’s based on Windows Core OS, the Lite will feature a different UI.

The Windows Lite is another operating system from Microsoft and it will target the group of consumers interested in secure and light experience. There are people who’d use a Microsoft Store-limited Windows 10 version without any problem.
