Rumor has it that Microsoft is secretly developing a new CloudPC service and will run Win32 applications on Windows 10X. References to the Cloud PC were first found in a LinkedIn job and there is very little confirmed information. But a new leak confirmed that the Cloud PC is getting ready.
Cloud PC is a service created with a virtual Windows desktop to support "Windows as a Service". Cloud PC is essentially business-oriented, and Microsoft says it will manage the service for client companies so that they do not have to worry about system updates and Windows applications.
As the name implies, Cloud PC brings your personal desktop to Microsoft Azure Cloud Service and allows you to remotely access the service from anywhere using any device, including Android or iPhone devices.
In a new support document, Microsoft mistakenly confirmed that it was developing the "Cloud PC". This is the first time Microsoft has referred to "Cloud PC" publicly through its own platform and simply refers to it as a "Cloud PC security base standard".
The document is online from last week and Microsoft's references to this mysterious software have gone unnoticed so far.
Cloud PC basically means that your Windows 10 operating system will be in the cloud, so you can access it remotely from anywhere. As mentioned above, this feature is for businesses, but the Windows 10X will have the same technology to stream Win32 apps through Microsoft cloud service.
The idea is very similar to the Windows virtual desktop, but will be more advanced and easier to use because of Microsoft Azure.
It remains to be seen when it will be released.
