Microsoft Requests Feedback

2010 June 4
by Shannon Lowder

The Senior Director of Product Planning for Windows Azure, Mike Wickstrand, is soliciting feedback on how to make Azure even better.  There’s even a site with user submitted suggestions at http://windowsazure.uservoice.com/forums/34192-windows-azure-feature-voting.  You can submit your own ideas, or read through the list and vote for others’ ideas.

I think this is a great idea.  If they can continually improve this product based on the users’ feedback, they’ll have the best cloud-based solution in the business!  I’ve been pretty happy with my development in SQL Azure.  I haven’t gotten to the Windows Azure, and probably never will.  I hope to outsource that portion of my projects.  But knowing that if anyone on my team comes across something that they genuinely feel can be made better, and knowing Microsoft is there to listen.  That’s definitely something to consider when choosing a cloud-based platform.

Keep it up Microsoft!

    Hi, I’m very interested in Linux but Im a Super Newbie and I’m having trouble deciding on the right distribution for me (Havent you heard this a million times?) anyway here is my problem, I need a distribution that can switch between reading and writing in English and Japanese (Japanese Language Support) with out restarting the operating system.

      A little off topic, but I’ll give my opinion. I believe Ubuntu is a great starter distribution. I’d also suggest grabbing the latest version, installing it, and giving it a shot. After installing it, check out the language packs available for it. In your start bar you’ll see an “add programs” Search there for the language packs you need. I think you’ll find you can use many languages without restarting. Let me know if you have more questions about Linux or SQL.
