Well I don't really consider Windows 10 as Windows... I am not sure what to call it. Windows 8.1 was the last true windows product. It makes me feel like they taken it into one of those auto chop shops, and stripped it for parts.
I think (this new software) they just should have given it another name, perhaps MS OS15, and been done with it.
I don't care wether it's free, subscription or pay up front, I'm in. I've been in since DOS and I've tried Linux, Android on a PC, OSX And early Amigas, Commodore 64 etc, I'll just stick with Windows thanks.
So next OS from MS will be called DOORS ?
One of the best things about this news, is that we won't have to listen to any more hype about Windows. Thank goodness.
Remember me? The simple in thought Layback Bear.
Adding things to a operating system that nobody asked for is not a improvement.
A Cloud system would be helpful to whom? Microsoft Office, I believe is the number on sold office program in the world. It has worked great for decades without being in a Cloud and will continue in that fashion if allowed.
A Cloud services in just another computer with storage that you have no control over. It's located somewhere in the world but you don't know where. It's controlled by people that you don't know or trust.
A business that needs such a thing has it already and it's called a home base server that is accessed by their employees over the internet. The business owns the server and has completed control. A company can and do use Office over the internet. The difference is the company controls their own Cloud (server and storage) and not someone else they don't know. The only difference is who controls the server and the security.
Most everybody know that our email is in a Cloud somewhere and controlled by somebody they don't know.
1. Do email Cloud servers get hacked? Yes
2. If the internet goes down can you get your email? No
3. Can your email account get hacked? Yes
4. Do hacked email accounts allow the hacker to get into the rest of your network or domain? Yes in many cases.
Why would anybody, personal or business trust their important data to such a system or method? Cloud storage is nothing but a Black Hat hackers wet dream. One stop shopping with out a check out lane.
Clouds are not going away. I would suggest only using them when their is not another choice and be careful about using them. If data is worth saving it's worth protecting.
Another consideration would be quieting one Cloud company and going to another Cloud company.
How does a company remove all their data from one Cloud to another Cloud and be sure nothing is left in the old Cloud. Well they won't know if everything is cleaned off the old Cloud. To me that means one must be very careful what company they choose for any kind of Cloud usage; whether it's data storage or a program they use.
They are pretty much stuck with their first choice. That is exactly why Microsoft wants programs in their Cloud. Once you are using their Office Cloud how does one go to another Office program and be certain that nothing is left behind in the Microsoft Cloud?
This is not only Microsoft's Clouds but every companies Cloud.
Cloud companies go out of business; several have. Now what do you do to gather your data and being sure nothing is left behind?
The Cloud you choose whether for Microsoft Office or and data can make you or break you.
