Windows 365 Upload Images   Link

Curious to see if Microsoft's upcoming Windows 365 runs like traditional Windows and it's just a licensing model like Office, or if it's actually going to run like a Virtual PC, in which case, it's a big NO for me.

Windows 365 is built on Azure Virtual Desktop - doesn't look promising to not be virtual. I also hate the thought of my operating system being ran from the cloud. What if I don't have internet for a while and want to do some offline work?

According to this video, looks like W365 is going to be more of a "fool-proof" managed service for everyone, whereas with AVD you have full control over the PC.

Windows 11 Android Apps Upload Images   Link

Whoa, according to this article, Windows 11 will be able to natively run Android Apps. That's kinda cool!

Wow that is cool, I've used Bluestacks in the past to mimic android apps on PC but having it built in would be a really nice feature.

This shifts the bar slightly away from "Remember Windows 8? RUN!" towards "This may be worth giving a try before Windows 12 is announced".

Microsoft released a preview of What's New in Windows 11. Are you guys planning to upgrade? It doesn't look like anything major was added, but it's a nice, clean, fresh interface. And of course they always fix (and break) things.

I plan to upgrade. I think the Snap Layouts are really neat. Might take a while to get used to the centralised Taskbar though.

I just hate when they make MAJOR revisions to things you're used to and don't give you any way to revert back. For example, Office 2007 and the Ribbon. HUGE interface change. No way to get back to the old File/Edit menus (without a 3rd party add-on). Windows 8 with the full-screen tile startup screen designed for touch devices. If you're going to do that stuff you need to give people an EASY way to revert back to what they're comfortable with. Businesses especially are going to balk at upgrading because now it means retraining people. I mean... I don't complain about that because training is kinda what I do... but I understand the hesitancy.
