New Life for QuadWC?

Postby paulmansour on Tue Jan 03, 2017 4:04 pm

I love ⎕WC. But whether I like it or not, I have a huge investment in it. I have resisted WinForms, put off learning WPF, and only recently looking into the HTML5/Javascript/CSS stack - (this latter being important regardless). So the idea of streaming my ⎕WC app through a browser to any device with no plugins or anything is more than a bit interesting:

https://aws.amazon.com/appstream2/

This would of course also allow streaming a WPF app.

Here is an additional blog post by the AWS team. Note there is a upcoming webinar on the 20th of January:

https://aws.amazon.com/blogs/aws/amazon-appstream-2-0-stream-desktop-apps-from-aws/

I tried the Excel demo on the site. I had a 300 millisecond latency which proved annoyingly slow to do real work. Amazon recommends a 100 millisecond latency.

If this works as advertised, it could really extend a lot of ⎕WC apps.

I intend to try out our products with it, and will report back.

Happy New Year!

We set this up with a real Amazon account and the results were much much better than the demo. Not sure if it was my connection or the demo, but it works very well. More investigation needs to be done, but this could be a game changer.
