It’s been rumored for some time that Microsoft might kill off some of its additional products due to the company’s change in focus. One of those rumored products is UE-V.
Microsoft User Experience Virtualization (UE-V) is a virtualization tool that enables users to move from one Windows device to another and keep the same operating system (OS) and applications settings.
According to a recent Twitter post and subsequent thread, it appears there may be more to this rumor.
If you are using UE-V… Stop… or tell me why you would need MS to support it in the future and I can try to ask them nicely.

Microsoft has yet to make any public statements. For those customers utilizing UE-V, you should contact your Microsoft representative to get clarification. According to Sami, Microsoft intends to push customers to Enterprise and Office 365 roaming instead.
The change makes a lot of sense considering Microsoft’s focus on cloud revenue. Look for more products that are tied to on-premises operations to be culled.
