This new build allows many apps from outside of the store to be run without issue!

- Is this behavior a major bug or is it by design? Can anyone else confirm this?

However, it did block 7-zip, showing the "Verified Apps from the Store" warning.
As you can see from the images, this is, indeed, Windows 10 S!

It's good. Did you try to install VMware Tools?

MS probably wanted people to be able to download and use their basic apps such as Chrome, MS Office, etc. with Windows 10 S. Or they are maybe disallowing apps without a valid digital signature like 7-zip. Chrome has a digital signature (Google Inc.) so that's probably why it's allowed.

Hopefully it will be easier to activate w/ a MS 'insider account' now too.

You still need a product key or upgrade over an activated copy to activate Windows regardless of your status as a Windows Insider.

I like it too. I guess I'm going to set this as the background on my Windows tablet (it's not a Surface).

Windows 10 S has no security anymore. All Authenticode-signed apps can now run, enjoy Java! ;-) Might be reverted before the FCU final...

If this is true, then what would be the point of Windows 10 S?
