Microsoft just announced that the preview version of Windows 11 is available for Azure Virtual Desktop customers, therefore providing them with access towards the latest operating-system whenever they have to give it a try in advance and run validation processes prior to the October launch.
Windows 11 is Microsoft’s next operating system for the desktop, and based on sources with knowledge of the matter, it ought to get the go-ahead in October, with people in the Windows Insider program to receive the final build a couple weeks before.
But Microsoft really wants to give everybody the opportunity to try out Windows 11, therefore the preview build of the OS is now on Azure Virtual Desktop in three different images, namely Windows 11 Enterprise, Windows 11 Enterprise multi-session, and Windows 11 Enterprise multi-session + Microsoft 365 Apps.
Windows 11 ISOs available too
“For Windows 11, Azure Virtual Desktop still provides exclusive support for multi-session, an important option that can help you optimize costs by running multiple users on a single Azure virtual machine. You can use Trusted Launch (obtainable in preview) to enable TPM 2.0 and secure boot included in the VM configuration to take full benefit of the safety capabilities in Windows 11,” Microsoft explains.
“The user experience with Azure Virtual Desktop will probably be just like the neighborhood PC experience. Some higher-end graphics effects, for example transparencies, animations, and rounded corners, may need using Azure Virtual Desktop by having an Azure VM using the right GPU support.”
On the similar front, Microsoft has recently shipped a brand new testing build of the OS, along with the first Windows 11 ISO images for insiders. These builds allow users to test the latest improvements, including the refresh received by core apps, along with the new OOBE experience that would be available when clean-installed the operating system.
