When Microsoft unveiled its Windows 365 Cloud PC desktop-as-a-service product last month, officials said they'd release pricing on the day the service became generally available, August 2. As promised, the company has published pricing, and it ranges from $20 per user per month for the lowest end SKU, to $162 per user per month for the most expensive one.
I'm no Luddite from a technological perspective, but I was arching my eyebrow when I looked at costs vs. specifications here. Sure, it may be attractive to some businesses, but I can't see it ever being adopted for our - especially after our experiences heretofore with cloud-based Office 324 (no, it's not a typo).

Just a thought.

With all the hacking, intrusions, ransomeware attacks and ID's in databases being stolen......this seems a way for everyone with one of these accounts to get screwed ....all at once..... with just one sucessful intrusion on MS.
