Lite is said to only run UWP apps and PWAs from the Store, and it will strip even more legacy components from the OS. This is so that the software becomes lighter and faster, while also enabling instant-on and always-connected capabilities, as well as making the OS more suitable to run on different chipset architectures such as ARM. It remains unclear, however, if this means Win32 apps from the Store won't be supported, since they are still supported in Windows 10 in S Mode.Via: Neowin
If it does indeed support only UWP apps, Microsoft would also be making a push for the platform, which has been seen as dormant for a while; the Redmond company itself seemed to abandon its Office apps built on the platform a while back, but that would likely need to change in order to fit this strategy.
