Good. Can we have more like that please MS.
For instance, I'd love to be able to have my users conveniently stand up their own CouchDB instance from right where they are. My app takes care of the complexity, just so long as CouchDB is online somewhere with an end-point. There are a few specialty hosts like Cloudant and IrisCouch. Joyent and DotCloud may be adding services too. But as far as I am concerned, the more accessible to end users the better.
There's plenty more projects like Node and Couch but, selfishly, these are the two I care about currently. I have to say, with this and its HTML5 strategy, MS appears to be trying to woo developers with no MS affiliation, such as myself onto its platforms. If they don't compete unfairly, I'll be open-minded.
