A few days ago, we saw a Cloud PC image leak, Microsoft’s proposal to access Windows in the cloud, a kind of streaming operating system. And now more and more Cloud PC rumors are emerging from screenshots taken by WalkingCat on Twitter.
Microsoft wants to bring Windows to all types of computers regardless of the greater or lesser potential they may offer, something very different from what has been pursued with Windows 11 and its severe limitations. The choice to achieve this is to use the cloud and take Windows anywhere.
Windows 10 first and Windows 11 later
User WalkingCat echoed images in which Microsoft is promoting Cloud PC as “the next step in personal computing.” They look like setup or startup screens for a service that a few days ago, ZDNet’s Mary Jo Foley, announced it could be introduced this week.

In the post, Foley announced that Microsoft has a session titled “What’s Next in End User Computing” scheduled for July 15, tomorrow which is a very close in time launch which may coincide with Microsoft’s Inspire event which takes place between July 14 and 15.

“Cloud PC” offers a new idea: to have access to Windows anywhere thanks to the use of the cloud, but in this case differentiating. A system that would be different from Azure Virtual Desktop, since if it is aimed at large companies, Cloud PC would be aimed at small companies or even the ordinary user through different plans.
So far, everything indicated that Microsoft could offer different Cloud PC subscription terms depending on aspects such as CPU, RAM or storage. To access the Cloud PC, it would be enough to have a compatible device with an Internet connection and here they enter from Android phones, to tablets and who knows if even the products of the Apple ecosystem.
It is expected that Cloud PC will go hand in hand with Windows 10 and that when Windows 11 is launched globally, the Windows platform in the cloud will be upgraded to the new version of the operating system.
