In late January, we learned that Microsoft is preparing a new version of its current operating system. It will be called Windows 10 Cloud, but not cloud services will not have.
This name is chosen because of oblegchenno OS. In particular, it can run only apps Unified the Windows Platform, which significantly limits the application of the system. But to compete with Chrome OS, the new system must be suitable.
Among other things, Windows 10, Cloud should mean the ability to run on low-performance PC. And today, the Network appeared information about the minimum recommended system requirements operating system.
There are Quad core CPU (Celeron or better), 4 GB RAM, drive (fast eMMC or SSD) 32 GB (64 GB for the 64-bit version) and battery capacity up to 40 W·h.
