Wondering how a Virtual Desktop (ie: Desktops in the Cloud) works?  If you want to know how to access one, we have the details in video!

Virtual Desktops (aka cloud desktops) are the way of the future, and I felt that the best way to gain a true sense of appreciation for the “groundbreaking-ness” of a Cloud Desktop as a radical innovation is to see it in action.
