Never mind Windows 365, I’ve yet to move on to Windows 11. Tried a few times and never liked it.

This seems like a really bad idea. Are there any examples of this that Lemmians are familiar with? Certainly can’t play games on it. Right?

    I had a friend, who runs a company hosting various OSs designed for this use case. He was singing their praises, till I pointed out a flaw. I work in places with less than optimal internet access. Even the mobile phone network often collapses. Suddenly, my laptop being independently capable is very important.

    I’ve moved away from windows a lot however. I mostly boot Ubuntu, with windows available if I need it. Most of the games I play also work fine under Linux now. It can be 6 months or more between windows boots.

      I think it’s a problem for consumers, especially as long as traditional PCs and laptops remain ubiquitous. I could see this changing over time as the natural way of things. There are all kinds of examples of people giving up a superior experience for the sake of cost or convenience. :-/
