Analyzing Image Quality in Windows 365 Cloud PC: HTML5 Webclient vs. Remote Desktop Client
Eltjo van Gulik has written a great post, analysing the graphics difference between using the web client and the remote desktop client for Windows 365.
“When working for a client via a Microsoft Windows365 Cloud PC recently, I noticed that in my Word document that I “was “working on, the text in Word appeared to be blurry. At that time I was making use of the HTML5 web client to access my Cloud PC. This made me wonder about the impact of the connection used for the image quality. My speculation at the time was that using the full client would result in a better image quality.“

HOW TO MOVE EXISTING CLOUD PC’S TO A DIFFERENT REGION
Dominiek Verham has written a great post covering how you can move Cloud PCs between different regions.
“In this post I’ll checkout the possibility to move a Cloud PC to a different Azure region. This feature has been introduced in service release 2305 and is still in preview. Up untill then it wasn’t possible to move a Cloud PC to a different region. Instead we had to reprovision the Cloud PC in a different region which works but is still a destructive process. This process also works for moving to a different Azure Network Connection.“

Difference between DevBox, Windows 365 and Azure Virtual Desktop
Marius Sandbu has written an awesome piece explaining the difference between DevBox, Windows 365 and Azure Virtual Desktop.

The main difference is that DevBox provides self-service capabilities while Windows 365 provides a pre-created virtual machine based upon a provisioning policy.“

Setup Windows 365 Frontline Cloud PC Provisioning Policy
Prajwal Desai has written a great post about how to setup Windows 365 Frontline.
“Windows 365 Frontline can greatly reduce the costs for an organization. Let’s understand this with an example. For instance, if you have 300 customer service reps who work in different time zones or shifts but only 100 of them work at the same time, you only need to buy 100 licenses to give each employee a personalized Cloud PC.”
