Windows 365: Microsoft presented its operating system in the cloud
While preparing the launch of Windows 11, Microsoft announced the arrival of 365 in the Spanish market, a cloud service that allows you to experience Windows 10 or 11 on personal computers and corporate equipment.
Windows 365 was revealed in mid-July, as a Microsoft solution that brings devices to the cloud for hybrid work and creates a new category within the company called “Cloud PC”: it uses both the cloud and the device capabilities.
This allows users to access all of their apps, tools, data, and settings across any device, as well as sign in and pick up where they left off, similar to what happens with logins in browsers like Google Chrome.
Microsoft has already announced that Windows 365 is available with different plans: prices range from $24 to $162 per month.
From the browser of a device it is possible to access our own Windows 365 just by logging in. Once the session has been started, the apps, settings and customizations that we have configured will appear.
This is useful for people who work from home several days a week and need to “bring their office” home.
For now Windows 365 is available with Windows 10 in the background. It is expected that as soon as Windows 11 arrives publicly, the servers will be updated and users will be able to contract Windows 365 with Windows 11.
Windows 365 prices
Prices vary depending on the type of computer we are using, since after all we are “renting” a Microsoft computer hosted on their servers.
With 1 CPU processors you can get the cheapest plan, for $24 per month. They have 2 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage, so it is designed for light productivity tasks.
Then there are plans with 2 CPU processors ranging from $32 to $44.
The most expensive plans are 8 CPUs with 32 GB of RAM and 512 GB of storage, priced at $162 per month.
Bill and Melinda, final chapter
Meanwhile, Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates and his wife of 27 years, Melinda French, are now officially divorced, according to the agreement approved by King County Superior Court in Seattle (USA) to which the local media had access.
The Gateses announced in early May that they were divorcing, after almost three decades of relationship in which they founded one of the most important charities in the world, whose activity they have guaranteed to continue despite the breakup.
The day after the announcement, the US media revealed the content of the divorce petition documents, filed by Melinda, in which she claimed that the marriage was "irretrievably broken", that spousal support was not necessary, and that the separation agreement would determine the division of their properties.
Bill and Melinda have three children, all of whom are of legal age. According to The Wall Street Journal, one of the issues that could have precipitated the breakup is Bill's relationship with the late disgraced tycoon Jeffrey Epstein, who committed suicide in prison in 2019.
This closes a chapter in the tech industry.
