Can I install python and java on Samsung book 2?

Can I install python and java on Samsung book 2?

I’m not sure, but I’m guessing yes (unless it has some weird, locked-down OS). What is the operating system type and version?

Windows 10 s

I called Samsung they said is not compatible but why??

From the Samsung Galaxy Book 2 webpage:

“Windows 10 in S mode works exclusively with apps from the Microsoft Store within Windows. Some accessories and apps compatible with Windows 10 may not work (including some antivirus and accessibility apps) and performance may vary, even after switching out of S mode. If you switch out of S mode, you can’t switch back. Learn more at

In addition, there are many posts online by people who have been unable to switch out of S mode, both on the Galaxy Book 2 and other laptops.

Personally, I would say buying anything with Windows in S mode is, at the least, very risky.

Did you already buy the computer?

Edit: if yes, we could look into ways around the problem. If no, it might be easier to look for a different computer.


But I can get it in monthly installments with my sprint account… that’s why

But I mean i can always get it and return it in 15 days

Ok thx

Samsung said is an arm processor
They are not sure if I can or not…

I could ask around to see if anyone has a used laptop if you want.

If u could ask around about the Samsung book 2 and python/java would great

You gotta love the sales hyperbole which suggests that the you-can-only-buy-apps-from-Microsoft is to make things more reliable.
