    Microsoft: Windows Virtual Desktop is now feature complete


    Microsoft is almost ready to start rolling out its Windows Virtual Desktop service. On August 12, Scott Manchester, Group Manager for the service, tweeted that WVD is now "feature complete" and "moving to the final phase for GA (general availability).

    Microsoft officials have not said exactly when WVD will be generally available other than later this year, but I'm hearing from some of my contacts that this could happen before the end of September, 2019. I've asked to see if Microsoft will comment on that alleged date. Update: A company spokesperson said Microsoft had no comment on the GA date for WVD.

    Microsoft made available a public preview of WVD -- its service for virtualizing Windows 7, 10, Office 365 ProPlus apps and other third-party software by running them in Azure virtual machines -- in March 2019. Microsoft first announced plans for the WVD service in September 2018. In addition to virtualizing operating systems and apps, WVD also provides multi-session Windows 10 and supports Windows Server RDS desktop and apps.

    Is this desktop more or less virtual than the one on my display right now?
