Microsoft Launches Windows 365 So That You Can Run Windows In The Cloud

Forget having a virtual machine on your Mac or Linux computer to run Microsoft Windows. Simply run Windows in the cloud. That’s what Microsoft is pitching with their announcement of Windows in the cloud which Microsoft calls Windows 365. Aimed at enterprise customers, Windows 365 will allow users to install their favorite Windows apps and experiences in the cloud, and access them from any device they choose. Cloud PCs will support “instant-on” start up, and will be available via subscription at a flat rate.

It sounds interesting. And it’s likely going to be a good revenue stream for Microsoft. You can expect it to launch on August 2nd. Though I am wondering when it will hit consumers. Because you know it will. And I also wonder how companies like VMware and other companies who do virtual desktops will react.
