AFAIK, on Windows 10 S you can only install software from the Microsoft
Store, and not from external sources. Microsoft has been enforcing this
in all countries in Europe since October 1st, 2019.

While this is indeed enforced, on x86, the S mode can be disabled by the
user. This action is irreversible though. [1]. The method is completelly
legal and authorized by Microsoft.

Authorized but strongly discouraged, especially with OEMs (who are
"invited" not to mention the possibility on their documentation). So, we
should manage the topic with care, to avoid upsetting OEMs who are happy
to install LibreOffice on their high level PCs, where they can avoid to
use Windows 10 S (which is compulsory on low level processors).


We can probably write a blog post where we explain how to install
LibreOffice on Windows 10 S, using Microsoft own sources (without any
mention to PC manufacturers). As a reason for the blog post, we can use
requests from individual users.
