New evidence that Microsoft is preparing a cloud-based Windows OS

Andy Patrizio | May 15, 2014
It's not much, but an employee may have given away a hint of a future product.

Then Microsoft made Office an on-demand app. And users learned what happened when their subscription expired: ransom. People could open and look at their Word and Excel files, but couldn't edit them.

So what will happen with a cloud-based Windows? Will we have to pay an annual fee to Microsoft? Users will go crazy and Apple will have a field day. I personally think such a move would be suicide, but I'm not the boss. So I hope less greedy heads prevail.
