Microsoft Trademarks 'Windows 365'

Microsoft has filed for a trademark on Windows 365 leading many to believe that sometime in the future, Microsoft intends to take the operating system down the same road as Microsoft Office. From the announcement that Windows 10 will be a free upgrade, it doesn’t look like there will be a subscription based fee in the near future, but from all indications, it looks like that is the direction Microsoft is taking.

Although, Microsoft has recently filed for a trademark for 'Windows 365', which adds a bit of fuel to the subscription based version of Windows. While this trademark could be a defensive claim, to make sure it is not taken by another company, if and when Microsoft does announce a subscription version of Windows, 'Windows 365" would likely be the name.
