Suddenly stumbled into the world of DaaS.

That's Desktop as a Service. A type of cloud-hosting where you actually pay for a virtual OS up on the cloud.

The use case for something like this would be if say you can't have your own computer on all the time, but want to perform a task that takes a long time to perform, and as such choose to boot up a virtual environment where you can run said task all day all night, as if it was a server with a GUI.

I've never tried a Windows server. Wonder if things like this would be possible there too...

Connecting to said remote computer remotely was apparently a bit of a problem, might've removed certain functionality with the OS I currently use for security boost, but I did do it! So here we go.

Windows on the cloud. Who would've thought...
