Microsoft started this transitioning the desktop to the cloud back in 2015 with the trademarking of Windows365.  Microsoft then began the move in earnest with Office365 being pushed as the primary way to get Office.  Microsoft has now announced Microsoft Managed Desktop as part of their Microsoft365 platform.  This turns your desktop into a subscription center for everything…from the operating system all the way to your Office to who knows where is now a subscription.  i personally have no intention of going down this route.  Given Microsoft horrid patching quality since Nadella canned the entire QA department the amount of bugs in all Microsoft patches is astounding.  Now Microsoft wants folks to pay a subscription for them to have total control of the desktop?  Many folks will do it anyway…That is the final nogo for my operations….i’ll be all Linux at that point.
