A new cloud platform called Frame is emerging this year as the most powerful option to create, access and manage a virtual Windows workstation or virtual desktop in the cloud—from just about any modern web browser on any device. Recently Architosh spoke with Nikola Bozinovic, CEO of Frame, to discuss his company’s offering and the larger trend afoot in the IT industry and what impact it may have on Apple’s Mac customers.
Frame’s technology has been employed at major Mac developer Adobe for quite some time, while major CAD companies like Siemens and Nemetschek have ongoing trials or studies behind the scenes.
Frame started with the software vendors, like Adobe, but the company today has announced a $10 M funding round and release date for its Frame Personal and Frame Business end-user model launch in early July. The public beta will allow users to test out Frame’s technology for the first time without using the invite process which has been open for months.

But in doing so, has the response merely signaled the significance this company poses in the market? In the end it probably doesn’t matter much. And the loser in this story isn’t going to be likely either of these companies. One thing is for sure, we know exactly why Apple wins.
