Windows 10 came out back in 2015 and while Microsoft has been pushing the new operating system to clients and customers Windows 10 is not very stable. When we get an update, a feature of Windows 10 gets fixed and a few other features are broken. In order to increase stability, the business version is released months after the home version but that still does not help much. Microsoft paid desktop-as-a-service plan could be an answer to that problem.
The Microsoft paid desktop-as-a-service plan is being called Microsoft Managed Desktop. Foley suggests that this is a way of making software like Office 365 a subscription model instead of a one-time license thing. The following is what Foley had to say in this regard:
It will provide customers the ability to lease a Windows 10 device that’s automatically provisioned for them and have the operating system kept up-to-date and more for a single monthly fee,
This is not the first time that we are hearing about this. Microsoft has mentioned this in the past. The following is what the company had to say regarding the matter:
Microsoft 365 Managed Desktop (MMD) is a new, per-user subscription service that enables customers with devices that can take advantage of the latest productivity tools and technologies (Device as a Service) in a secure, monitored, and supported IT environment (IT as a Service).
Microsoft paid desktop-as-a-service plan has not been officially announced right now, so take this information with a grain of salt. Things could be very different when we have an official announcement. For more information regarding the Microsoft paid desktop-as-a-service plan stay tuned.
It will be interesting to see how Microsoft paid desktop-as-a-service plan works out and how businesses are going to react to this and whether or not this is going to be adopted by the masses. It might have the potential to be a game changer but if Microsoft does not work on Windows 10 and get things working properly, then it is safe to say that this plan is not going to work. No plan is going to work if the issue is with the operating system.
