Windows 10 Cloud

In recent builds of Windows 10  we got hints of a new OS called Windows 10 Cloud but we did not know what it was going to be until the Windows 10 Cloud ISO lead online and we got to the bottom of it. As it turns out Windows 10 Cloud is a Windows 10 version of Windows RT that came out on the first generation of Microsoft Surface. If you are familiar with that you know what you can only use applications found on the App Store.

Windows 10 Cloud Has A lack Of Win32 App Support

Windows 10 Cloud has a lack of Win32 app support and that is pretty much all the difference there is to the OS. Talking about the ISO that was leaked online it seems that the OS is far from ready at the moment and there are numerous bugs that will spoil your experience if you are willing to try it out in the first place. 

Besides that, you will be surprised to learn that Win32 apps that have been converted to windows universal apps also do not work on the OS as of right now but we could see support for such apps somewhere down the line as WU apps are supposed to work across the board on all Windows 10 devices.

Windows 10 Cloud May Feature Paid Upgrade

Somewhere down the line if you buy a portable Windows 10 Cloud device and want to run desktop applications on it then word has it that you will be able to do so by paying for an upgrade that will give you a more “complete” Windows 10 experience.

A leaked EditionMatrix.xml shows that users may be able to upgrade to the Pro version of Windows 10 but they will have to pay for the added features which the cloud version lacks.

Windows 10 Creators Update will be coming out in April and it is possible that the Cloud version of Windows 10 will also be announced at the same time. Let us know what you think about Windows 10 Cloud and the lack of features it comes with.
