Microsoft’s Windows Insider program is great. Not only does it offer us tons of updates on Microsoft’s current projects, we also get sneak peeks of the latest Windows features. Such is the case with Windows 10 Cloud, a feature that people weren’t able to figure out.

Windows 10 Cloud recently popped up in one of the recent Windows Insider builds that was made available to those enrolled in the program. It was tricky to find out anything about the significance of this feature since Microsoft did not respond to people’s inquiries. For now, Microsoft is keeping Windows 10 Cloud a secret. Still, that didn’t stop people from trying to figure it out themselves. Many speculate that Windows 10 Cloud is a cloud-based operating system which will take Microsoft’s platform to a new territory in a similar way to how Google’s Chrome OS operates on Chromebook devices. Others are betting on a subscription-based service similar to Office 365.

The return of Windows RT

There is also a group of speculators that believe Windows 10 Cloud is a reincarnation of Windows RT. Basically, they believe that Microsoft is planning to release Windows 10 Cloud as the Windows 10 version of RT, and it would serve the same functions.

The basis of Windows RT was that it could only be used to run Windows Store apps. Users weren’t able to install any other desktop applications onto Windows RT.  The same concept seems to be the case here, although in an improved state.

Release Date

The Windows 10 Creators Update is slated for release in April. That means there’s still a lot of time left for Microsoft to get Windows 10 Cloud up and running. There is a fair chance we could see Windows 10 Cloud come with the Creators Update when that hits. If Windows 10 Cloud ends up being an alternative for the Chromebook market, we might see Windows-powered machines that come with a lower price tag. These devices are very valuable in the education system as we have seen classrooms all over adopting Chromebook packages.
