Microsoft Working on Cloud Shell Version of Windows

Category: Operating Systems
Posted: 04:25PM

Microsoft described its intent to operate Windows 10 as a service at some point, "meaning the platform will receive frequent and substantial updates," perhaps with a monthly fee rather than one time cost. It now appears that this effort may take the form of something known as Cloud Shell, described as a "lightweight iteration of Windows designed for the modern computing world." The name of the new service seems to indicate a possibility that it might operate in the cloud and present users with a thin client, similar to what is available in some versions in Linux. Further details about the service are sparse at this time, but it appears that a release sometime in 2017 is possible.
