Microsoft launched Windows 10 with an aggressive objective of getting 1 billion devices to run its OS.
Last we checked, Windows 10 is on around 300 million devices. That is not an awful start, but rather how does the company get to 1 billion? Offering super cheap PCs with an improved rendition of Windows 10 to contend directly with Chromebooks running Google’s Chrome OS may be the approach.
Recently, ZDNet distributed a report uncovering an unannounced rendition of Windows 10, referenced as “Windows 10 Cloud,” inside the most recent Windows Insider test constructs.
As indicated by the report, Windows 10 Cloud is a “disentangled” rendition of Windows 10 that will just run Universal Windows Platform apps downloaded from the Windows Store. Meaning, clients with Windows 10 Cloud PCs won’t have the capacity to install their own apps from somewhere else.
Windows 10 Cloud seems to be indistinguishable to the standard adaptation of Windows 10. The main obvious rearrangements include from where apps are installed. Windows 10 Cloud, be that as it may, shows up a long way from prepared for prime time. While apps like Slack and Evernote worked fine from the Windows Store, worked in basic apps like Notepad and Paint didn’t. Securing where you can install apps from feels hostile to a client, yet it’s all for the sake of security, clearly.
The name may basically be an approach to position it directly against Chromebooks and Chrome OS, demonstrating to customers that Windows 10 Cloud machines aren’t the “full” Windows 10 experience.
However, on the other hand, with Chromebooks getting Android apps from the Google Play store this year, Microsoft is probably likewise hoping to put its Windows Store up front on PCs. Windows 10 Cloud would be the ideal approach to do only that.
