Microsoft Cloud PC is Coming in Spring 2021 - [briefly]
02:16 PM EDT - Jul,20 2020 - post a comment

Mary Jo's at it again: In addition to today's news about Windows 10X, Ms. Foley today reported that Microsoft is working on a virtualized Windows desktop experience for thin clients called Microsoft Cloud PC. It's expected in Spring 2021. As she writes, Cloud PC won't replace Windows and Office on rich PCs for the foreseeable future. Instead, this new service will be option for businesses that wish to deploy low-end PCs that will behave in many ways like thin clients, with software delivered from the Azure cloud.
I found a job description posted June 5 for a program manager for Microsoft's Cloud PC team on the company's careers site. The description of Cloud PC isn't super-detailed -- or surprising to anyone following Microsoft's virtualization strategy.

"Microsoft Cloud PC is a strategic, new offering that is built on top of Windows Virtual Desktop to delivering Desktop as a Service. At its core, Cloud PC provides business customers a modern, elastic, cloud-based Windows experience and will allow organizations to stay current in a more simplistic and scalable manner," the job description says.

Microsoft is planning to make Cloud PC a Microsoft-365-powered experience that is managed by Microsoft and sold for a flat per user price, the job description says. This pricing piece is key. Windows Virtual Desktop pricing revolves around Azure consumption. Cloud PC sounds like it will be available for a set subscription fee.

Microsoft had dropped a few hints recently that it was looking to create some kind of virtualized PC management experience. In February, Scott Manchester, who had been Group Program Manager for Windows Virtual Desktop, took on a new role as Group Program Manager for "Cloud Managed Desktops." I'm guessing that this team, along with Windows engineering, are the ones honing the Cloud PC vision and deliverables.

The biggest question here is when will Microsoft introduce its Cloud PC service/offering. I'm hearing this could happen as early as next spring, but Microsoft officials would not talk about Cloud PC at all and provided the "Microsoft will not comment on rumors and speculation" boiler-plate answer to my query.
Imagine a nightmare of streaming OS and Apps, no matter how fast connection you have it is a horrible experience. There is no in hell I would ever sign up for such garbage idea, and most Windows users are not going to do the same. Microsoft is going to lose Windows users very quickly. They are really working hard on pushing everyone to Linux along with Gaming industry and that's the end of Windows and Microsoft as we know it.
