Congrats Sathya Nadella - Can you please make this possible...
I think you are the right person for the job. Here is one of many items that many bloggers are adding on their wishlist and requesting from you to make it possible and to make it a reality:
** Windows Superleggera 1.0 and the devices that run it **
What is Windows Superleggera?
It is NOT the version of Windows that runs on Surface RT.
It is definitely NOT the full version of Windows that runs on Surface Pro and desktops.
It is a lightweight (superleggera) version of windows that is technically a proxy or a dumb terminal to a full version of Windows in the cloud.
Yes, I am going to make a reference to Chrome OS and Chromebook that had a very successful 2013.
Yes, we want a WindowsBook laptop that runs Windows Superleggera and connects to my full Microsoft World in the cloud where:
We could use a full version Windows with all the tools that developers use. I should be able to use somebody else's WindowBook and still do my .NET development that I would do from my own WindowsBook.
We could use a lightweight version of Windows that many consumers would utilize and that lightweight version of Windows in the cloud would run all the full Office applications, browsers, and any other standard tools that a business person, students, writers, journalists would typically use.
There is good news. You already have it at the Enterprise level:
Microsoft Virtualization Destkop Infrastructure (VDI).
You can just make it possible for the regular consumers and while you are handling this on the software side, you can also stick to the company's "devices and services" strategy and build the WindowsBook devices that are just thin clients the same way a Chromebook is a thin client to the Google cloud.
