 Microsoft knows that with regards to the educational aspect, Google is dominating, as what was stated by The Register, more than 50 percent of American kids in school is utilizing a Chromebook as a guide to their reviews or studies. It is a quite great number and Microsoft needed to have a good place in the realm of students' life. The Education market is known to be controlled by Chromebook for a long while now and in order for Microsoft to enter this market, it needs to facilitate its system.

 What's more, it must give simple usefulness and offer clients with a moderate value, The Verge commented.
