Windows virtual computing services for the masses

Well, it’s not quite free software, but Amazon has just announced “WorkSpaces“, a $35 per month complete Windows virtual computing service for your phone, tablet, or laptop. While the price may have to come down some more for widespread adoption, and I’m sure there are still some security or performance issues remaining, the writing is on the wall. Organizations small or large just don’t need to manage IT services — whether internal or outsourced — any more.

Data Scientists, and mission-critical IT specialists (with or without internally developed software) will still be really valuable. IT-savvy employees? Absolutely vital. But internal vanilla desktop support IT? Completely gone.
