Windows 10 cloud will support Upgrades to Windows 10 Pro

Microsoft logoWindows 10 Cloud ISOs got leaked to the web a couple of days ago, so it’s only a matter of time until Microsoft itself acknowledges this version of the operating system and provides us with more information on its features and purpose.

But in the meantime, more information emerges through unofficial channels, and one such report indicates that Windows 10 Cloud would support upgrades to the full version of Windows 10.

First and foremost, some background. If the information that reached the web lately is accurate, Windows 10 Cloud might be an operating system allowing Windows Store apps exclusively, which means that users won’t be allowed to install Win32 software.

If this is true, then Windows 10 Cloud could be very similar in purpose to Windows RT, the operating system that Microsoft debuted with the Surface RT in October 2012 when it also launched Windows 8.

There’s a new report, however, which reveals that Microsoft could make Windows 10 Cloud fully upgradeable to Windows 10 Pro, so even though the OS would be locked to Windows Store apps, purchasing the upgrade could make it possible to install Win32 software on the same device if supported.

If this is the case, it will probably be just a matter of time until a jailbreak is released to unleash the full capabilities of Windows 10 Cloud, thus making it possible for devices that come with the operating system to run Win32 software as well.

Microsoft could very well offer Windows 10 Cloud for free to OEMs who decide to install the operating system on their devices, with the company trying to kill two birds with one stone: bring more devices running its latest operating system to the market and, at the same time, give developers another reason to create universal apps, as they would be able to target a growing audience.

It's not yet clear when Microsoft plans to unveil Windows 10 Cloud, but the company could confirm work on this project in the coming weeks, ahead of a possible debut in April with the Creators Update.
