    Tbh, I find it scary how good Microsoft has been making Azure. It's almost tempting to try it, but knowing it's Microsoft thankfully leads to the realization that I shouldn't.

      They've built it up rapidly, for sure. Amazon is still ahead though in terms of features and overall platform maturity... plus they're not Microsoft.

        But I though Intel said EPYC was glued together shit?

        Also wasn't the Microsoft rep one of the people to leave the room before Intel finished that presentation? I know the Amazon rep did.

              The features are there, but the Azure API will make you question your sanity.

              Thankfully the tooling is widely available on linux. The azure-cli 2.0 is written in python by MS, supported by their azure python sdk.

              And if you need it, .net core 2.0 also exists on linux and works with powershell 6. I still hate powershell though.
