Windows Hosting options
After buying a Chromebook for my wife I loved it so much I bought one for myself. Now, I am a computer engineer of 30 years and pretty much a Windows server and desktop power user. That being said I find that on a personal level the only time I go to my Windows box is via Chrome RD and then only to access Quicken and Sketchup (for woodworking).
The Windows box is old and needs updating. I hate to go buy or build one just to use it for these tasks and was thinking of a hosted desktop solution. Has anybody done this (Azure, Amazon, Google) and what has your experience been?
