The latest build of Windows 10 - now being made available to Insiders - is looking to replace passwords with a variety of different authentication methods - at least for the stripped down Chrome-clone Windows S. Keep in mind that Microsoft is yet to officially announce the dates for Build 2018, and although WalkingCat's leaks are nearly never inaccurate, you are probably better off waiting for the official announcement before making any bookings. With Windows 10 S you don't have to!

You can see if your laptop is included by going to Settings Apps Video playback and seeing if you can switch the toggle to on to access a new calibration tool.
Effectively, all the various alternatives to passwords that Microsoft has shoved under the Windows Hello banner will be absorbed into Windows S, which was recently turned from a fully fledged (and not widely used) operating system in its own right to a Windows 10 mode.
Windows Subsystem for Linux improvements: WSL updates in this build include the ability to automatically configure certain functionality with wsl.conf, better file handling via folder level case sensitivity and more.
