Microsoft has just taken a big step forward with the Windows operating system by releasing Windows 365, which is a cloud-based desktop operating system platform.
Windows 365 is Microsoft's newly launched cloud service that allows users to experience and use Windows 10 or Windows 11 operating systems in a whole new way.
Instead of having to install Windows on a computer to use as before, Microsoft will now bring the Windows operating system to the cloud, and allow users to use them on a web browser with the familiar Windows 10 or 11 UI.
Windows 365 will store user information, data, and software that users install in the cloud, instead of directly on the computer as before. The difference is that Windows 365 is accessed and used through a web browser or Microsoft's Remote Desktop application.
Windows 365 allows users to sign in on many different devices so they can continue their unfinished business. With the features of a cloud, users can access all of their Windows 365 personalized apps, tools, data, and settings online, across any device.
Windows 365 Services will officially launch on August 2, first for businesses of all sizes. Businesses can use Windows 365 to create different computers for different use cases.
For simple office work, there will be a basic configuration with a single core CPU, 2 GB of RAM and 64 GB of free memory. There are a total of 12 available configurations suitable for different configurations such as 8-core CPU, 32 GB RAM or 512 GB of free memory.
