Sunday, October 15, 2017 for Windows 10 Desktops in the cloud

I recently needed a clean Windows 10 desktop for testing purposes. I couldn't use Docker, Vagrant, VirtualBox or any of the other local-to-my-computer VM solutions. I tried the Amazon Workspaces solution but it had the typical UX of 30 questions I don't know the answer to. I just wanted a desktop that could download from the Internet. to the rescue!

Within 5 minutes I had a Windows 10 desktop in a browser and the hardest questions where how much CPU and ram I wanted. The cost was incredibly inexpensive too.

The test only took 10 minutes and I destroyed the cloud machine after that.

This was the easiest, fastest, and cheapest solution to the problem.
