Sites, VMs, and the cloud, oh my!

Windows Azure has done it again, expanding and increasing the features available at a super rapid pace. Lately we have added a new SaaS feature called Web Sites where you can host 10 web sites for free for life! You can also run your own VMs, even if their Linux. What?!?!? Did a Microsoft guy say the L word? Oh, yes he did! See how to get the most out of the latest features, and what other crazy-open-source-lovin-living-in-a-van-down-by-the-river-stuff we are up to in the cloud!
