This was disclosed by Sachin Dev Duggal, co-founder and Chief Wizard, nivio. The company offers the world's first Windows-based online desktop service, and enables customers to access their personal desktop from any device connected to the internet.

The online desktop offers the ability to rent original and updated software on a rental (pay as you go) basis, on Windows, Mac and other platforms to consumers, prosumers and small businesses, liberating users from the traditional constraints of computing.

With a free trial offer for 1 month, the student version will cost less than Rs 200 and will give access to Windows and MS Office on any platform.

The company has over 100 business and utility apps for its subscribers, but this number is likely to go up to 5,000 in the next 14 months, informed Duggal.

nivio (a Sanskrit word which means 'all encompassing'), besides offering their service directly, are also likely to partner with telecom operators including Airtel and Videocon, where the service bill to the customer will be part of the regular phone bill.
