Once I was done playing around I just entered the Pro generic key and it upgraded to Pro and stayed activated. The generic keys will let you install, they just won't activate if the PC doesn't already have a DL. My PC's all have multiple DL's for just about every Edition of Windows 10. Due to all my test installs etc.
    OP is creating confusion by multi posting. I think mods (e.g. @Brink) should lock this down. We have heard nothing back from OP so I see no point in us all carrying on this discussion.

Those apps can be desktop apps like Evernote and Slack, Spotify and iTunes, which have been converted for the Store using the Desktop Bridge – that’s how Microsoft will get Office 2016 onto Windows 10 S."

    A closer look at Windows 10 S, Windows 10 on ARM and Windows 10 IoT | TechRadar
    I've been wanting 10 Mobile ported to the PI for a long time now, not going to happen though.

    Last time I checked Windows 10 on ARM won't run on the ARM SOC in the Pi. You need Snapdragon or something. It will be interesting to see what the rumored Pi 4 comes with, SOC wise. And 10 IoT is useless to me, I just don't have the coding skills to make use of it. I bookmarked that link, thanks, will have a look see latter on today. To early in the day for that now. It's time to take my dog for our morning walk in the woods anyway. See ya.

    I agree, its drifting a little off topic too. And I'm as guilty as the next guy for that.

    We all are when we got on the topic of how Windows could be used on different platforms, when something like 10 S is brought up.
