Well.... I wont pretend I understand all of it, but it seems their offering is pretty big.

So it doesn't have to do much with "Windows" OS in any sense, it's just a little confusing name for their SaaS.

Thanks!




The virtualization platform they are using for all this stuff is Hyper-V which runs on Windows, so the name is still relevant.


Originally Windows was the only OS in this platform, but I iirc they are planning to change the name also.


Correct. They are dropping the Windows bit. Details here:

There's no brand change.
