Is there a way to configure the Windows 365 for a pure AzureAD experience?  I am surprised, this is not something native. 

Basically, we join all our devices (Windows 10) directly to AzureAD and inTune and do not have an on-prem domain.  

 

I have a need to create VMs for non-employee users, and this would be perfect if I can connect them the same way as I would a normal desktop with the OOBE

you would need to use a business version, I have done this and it's joined Azure AD with no problem (it pretty much did it for me) and I can still manage it in MEM, this gives me easy access to email and SharePoint etc.

@Tom Davison Thanks, of course the trial I have was Enterprise, I guess we just buy a business license to see it work.

yeah some times the bigger product isn't always the better one :)
Soon there will be ability within Enterprise option of Windows 365 to choose AADJ option, this is published in our "in development" doc.
