Windows 10 S ISO ready for download with MSDN subscription

Microsoft is letting developers download and install Windows 10 S for testing, but you can get it too.

Microsoft has released the ISO files for Windows 10 S to MSDN subscribers. The new variant of Windows that runs only Store apps is available primarily for developers to make sure their apps are ready for Windows 10 S and the education audience, but anyone with an MSDN subscription can download the ISO and install the OS.

However, the download still limited to subscribers, as it seems that Microsoft currently doesn’t have plans to make it available directly from its download website for anyone to switch.

While this may never happen, there is a report from The Verge suggesting that Microsoft is creating an Update Assistant tool in the coming days that will include Windows 10 S. The tool it’s said to be only for schools, but there is a slightly chance that anyone will be able to use it, grab a copy of Windows 10 S.
