Microsoft has scheduled a conference entitled "The Next Step in User Computing" for July 15. One of the speakers at the conference was Scott Manchester, who focused on Microsoft's latest cloud solutions to support hybrid work.

According to his resume, he is the Director of Software Management for Cloud Hosted Desktops, responsible for the development of virtual desktops for Windows, remote desktop services, remote second displays, multimedia, and network technologies.

A few months ago, it was reported that Manchester was developing a cloud service for PC running on Microsoft Azure, codenamed Deschutes.
