    Windows 365: Not coming to a PC near you


    In various episodes of our Windows Weekly netcast, Paul Thurrott and I have both speculated that something like a "Windows 365" subscription service could be how Microsoft plans to continue to make money off Windows. Earlier this month, a list of the alleged status of a number of Microsoft's future products, including "Windows 365," has been making the rounds.

    After asking around a bit, I believe that Windows 365 is not real, not in development and not on the roadmap.
    Emphasis is mine

    Well there are sources and there are sources... unfortunately she makes no mention of the origin of hers... M$ have different developement channels and if her sources are within those assigned subscription services, then fine... however if not, it's just a smoke screen... there is nothing of substance to disprove the "fake list" she alludes to.

    or perhaps M$ saw the results of your poll and decided not to pursue development LOL...

    actually Microsoft is pushing Office 365 more than Ofific3 2013 especially to its business clients. I am a Microsoft Partner and have Office 365 and sell it through Microsoft. I belong to a closed Microsoft Partner group (you only get invited to this group through Microsoft Community Connections where I also belong), and we are constantly told that this is the present and future of Microsoft through their office division.

It's certainly a faster, more stable OS than Vista but it reminds me of Vista because it's in between a sharp, very well done OS(Windows 7) and something that's coming up in the near...
