Windows 11 may sound like the next evolution for Windows, but Microsoft is working on something more revolutionary, with another leak hitting the Internet that shows the company’s cloud PC service.
According to purported promotional material posted on Twitter, it looks like a version of Windows desktop running in a web browser window.

This matches what we’ve heard about Microsoft Cloud PCs, where people will essentially stream Windows 10 (or Windows 11) desktops over the Internet.

benefits of cloud
By streaming cloud-based Windows desktops, it allows people to use Windows 10 or 11 on devices that normally wouldn’t be able to run them, such as low-powered Chromebox mini PCs.
This can be especially useful for businesses, as they can let their employees access powerful PCs remotely without having to provide expensive physical equipment. It will also allow them to remotely manage their employee’s devices, just like installing critical security updates.
Being able to access the PC by logging in via a web browser from anywhere in the world can be extremely useful for many people as well, and it will apparently run using Microsoft’s Azure Server, Microsoft’s xCloud game streaming service. How does it work?
Microsoft Cloud PC was expected to be announced at the same event that Windows 11 was shown in June, but it was a no-show.
Now, rumors suggest that it may appear on the Microsoft Inspire, which runs between July 14 and 15.
