Last week Microsoft launched their new Windows 365 cloud service providing the Windows operating system and virtual Windows computers you can access from almost any device. Microsoft launched the service with a free trial available but unfortunately due to “unbelievable response” has closed invitations for the near future although you can still register to be included on the waiting list.
If you are interested in how cloud Windows computers perform when compared to traditional hardware desktops situated locally under your desk, you may be interested in a new video created by YouTube ThioJoe.
