Microsoft is reportedly developing an operating system that would replace the client based system we are used to today where the OS is on your local computer. The new OS, called Midori, would likely be web based and likely reside on the Internet.

This arrangement would allow a user to access their operating system from multiple computers and not be tied to hardware. Microsoft has made it clear that it wants to move to subscription based software and Midori could well be the first subscription based OS.
Microsoft offered no comments on the OS and simply said it was in development, but so early in its development that it can’t talk about it.
