    As I understand it The way to run steam on a chromebook is to dump the OS completely and run steam through a suitable Linux distro. Now this is a simple enough option if you have the knowledge and desire to "get your hands Dirty", but there are a lot of Students, in non technical areas of study, who just want a "Big Phone"
    Spot on!

    Update: Windows 10 Accessibility: What to Expect Later This Year - Windows 10 Forums

    The Windows team is committed to delivering built-in assistive technology that exceeds our users’ needs and expectations. We are also working closely with assistive technology partners to continue to improve their experiences with Windows 10 and to support deploying more assistive technology apps in the Microsoft Store. We recently announced Windows 10 S, which promises Windows 10 devices with faster boot times and improved security and reliability. We believe Windows 10 S is great for many customers. Others may prefer Windows Home or Windows Pro to meet their needs. Microsoft is committed to meeting the needs of people with disabilities and providing choices for devices and modes for operating Windows. We will provide assistive technology users with a switch to Windows 10 Pro from Windows 10 S at no charge as we continue to improve our built-in assistive technology and bring more assistive technology apps to the Microsoft Store.

    I would doubt it. You can, however, up grade 10 S to 10 Pro.

    I would go as far as saying "almost certainly not".

    I must admit I do not understand the rationale about being able to upgrade 10S to Pro - I could see rationale going to 10 Home.

    I didn't get that part either? They place it between Home and Pro, but it seems to me, that it has less features than Home? A locked down version of Home if you will. The free upgrade to Pro will likely get people to at least try it out though. There must be a way to lock that out though? If say its used in a school setting and under the control of the school, aka supplied by the school.

    I thought that the "free" update to pro was another limited offer for assistive technology users

    I wasn't talking about a "free" upgrade. Maybe there is, maybe there isn't. Just, in general, there is an upgrade path.
