Is anybody here developing any applications that will utilize the platform?

It looks quite interesting and the SDKs let's just say are lost on the Microsoft Download Servers at the moment (:

Sorry a little non-relating, but what is Windows Azure? A codename or actual name.. because I've heard the name here and there and have always wondered.

#1 it was known as midori before.

#2 hell no I will not develop for this crap. I'd launch stuff on EC2 or Google App Engine way before that crap, where you know, you can do more with it using decent languages :P.

Midori != Azure

Azure is based on Windows Server.

Wrong, Midori will be a cloud computing-based consumer OS using the Singularity kernel that is supposed to replace Windows in the future.

Huh... that's interesting. Unfortunately, the idea of a cloud OS creeps me out. I actually am a tester for a similar concept called G.HO.ST and I am more likely to trust my data with them than with Microsoft.

Wrong again. I've seen nothing convincing to suggest that Midori will be based in the cloud, though I have no doubt it'll move more towards better integration with the cloud.
Also, it won't use Singularity's kernel, rather have it's own kernel developed using the same managed code/microkernel approach. Singularity's kernel is too far from a usable Client kernel to be used in a Client OS project.

Oh, and it's not initially intended to replace Windows as such, it's currently nothing more than a research project, though it will probably replace Windows if it 'works' as such.

We can't really say much about Midori, it's so secretive... all we know for sure is that it's simply a research project using the Singularity kernel. There's been speculation that it might replace Windows, but as Mary Jo Foley said in a post before, the earliest possibility of that happening is after Windows 8.

I thought that this was going to be included in Windows 7?

Disregard what i said I suck cocks.

I was under the assumption that this is what midori turned into as they were both cloud computing, also I had the thought that Midori was more or less of a Windows desktop so to say running on a cloud, but whatever.
