In a statement to Neowin, HP has now announced that they will be bringing seamless deployments of Windows 10 through AutoPilot on HP PCs in the Fall. Microsoft does add that they continue to support Windows 10 Mobile, just not these apps anymore (for now).
Regedit appears to be missing, but CMD and reg.exe are present and accounted for.
Microsoft a year ago announced Windows AutoPilot, a new set of features powered by cloud-based services that simplifies the deployment and management of new Windows 10 PC's along with enhancements to Mobile Device Management and new Device Health features in Windows Analytics. Its stripped down functionality implies that it could be a good fit for low-powered notebooks, but the lack of user-friendly features like wallpapers implies to us that it might be destined for enterprise users. In this early version, Lucas also found that Microsoft's Edge browser doesn't show download prompts, which means you can't get files from the internet, making it even more restricted than Windows 10 S.
Gas prices approach $3 per gallon in Meadville area
The national average price of gas is $2.76 and AAA said the fuel is "selling at $2.26 or more at every gas station in America". Metro Detroit's average, like the statewide daily average, has not been this high since 2015.
Our hunch is that Microsoft is building a more barebones version of Windows 10 for lower power laptops and 2-in-1 devices, and not necessarily ones aimed at teachers and students. It seems that Windows 10 Lean will be a spiritual successor to Windows 10 S.
We're not pretty sure what Microsoft's plans are with this SKU. Think of modern day netbooks, if you will, with less hardware resources available than what is found in pricier systems.
