We come back to talking about cloud-based Windows, Microsoft’s plan to bring its operating system to different devices and thus forget about the hardware that until now could limit us. We were aiming for a launch between today and tomorrow and that is what ultimately happened. We already have Windows 365 with us.
The company has confirmed its commitment to the cloud to have a kind of Windows streaming but instead of Cloud PC they have opted for a name in line with the other products of the brand and if we have Office 365 now it’s our turn. of Windows 365.
Windows 365 is something many may remember from Microsoft xCloud or Google Stadia, but now put entertainment aside.

Windows 365 is a child, as they suggest in the pandemic release. It’s about making it easier to work from anywhere and from any device. And by the way, the need for specific hardware or personal device security is eliminated.
Windows 365 will generally be available for businesses of all sizes from August 2, 2021 and they have already activated a page, this link, to learn more.
Businesses can choose the size of Windows in the cloud that best suits their needs at the price per user per month. In this sense, it offers two options which include Windows 365 Business and Windows 365 Enterprise.
