We recently talked about the new Windows 365, a hosted platform for the Windows operating system. This past week, a trial was offered for a number of people in the business world. They overwhelmed the system in a matter of a day, and Microsoft had to stop the trials. It’ll be interesting to see what comes of this, and what many thought would be limited in interest to the business world, may actually have a lot more interest for people who want to move to the new model of paying for a CPU boost without maintaining the hardware.
A free two-month trial for Windows 365, a virtual PC running Windows 10 on Microsoft’s Azure cloud, has been withdrawn after only a day having “reached capacity.”
A note on the Windows 365 product page states: “Following significant demand, we have reached capacity for Windows 365 trials,” and offers a signup to be notified when trials resume.
