Some of you might remember hearing about something called Windows 10 Cloud recently. The Windows 10 variant which has been spotted last week on Microsoft’s testing platform has re-surfaced and now we have more news concerning the project.

Windows 10 Cloud is supposedly a more minimalistic version of the standard Windows 10 operating system. The main idea behind Windows 10 Cloud is the fact that users would be able to only use Microsoft Windows apps and games. This is similar to Google’s Chrome OS and the Chromebook initiative which has people relying more on working online and on a cloud platform rather than soliciting the computer’s storage.

Windows 10 Cloud Leaks

More information regarding Windows 10 Cloud surfaced, making it seem like users will be able to upgrade the OS to a much more “complete” and feature-packed version of Windows 10. Apparently, those with Windows 10 Cloud installed can opt for an upgrade to Windows 10 Pro, which is the typical Windows OS the general public is familiar with.

One way to get to the page where you can upgrade to Windows 10 Pro is by trying to install a regular Win 32 application. When doing this, you will be prompted by Windows 10 Cloud that it is not possible and it will offer the solution of upgrading.

It is believed that Microsoft might be intending to use this Cloud variant of their operating system in an attempt to better compete in the market with the aforementioned Chromebook devices. The idea would be that they offer a cheap computer solution running Windows 10 Cloud with the ability of upgrading to Windows 10 Pro. This would certainly bring more balance to this sector of the market where Google is currently uncontested thanks to the affordable Chromebook devices.

Currently, Chromebooks are even used in the educational system where they are praised for their efficiency, ease of use and affordable costs. Microsoft has shown interested in the educational sector as well, even coming out with new software and computer solutions specially made for education not that long ago.
