"The catch, of course, is that it means developers will also need ... the free Express version."

What a dastardly catch! You might have to download a free piece of software to make this work!

It's Microsoft's data centre, not yours. You don't have to care about any of that. It's a wizard that exposes a simple DB via a set of APIs. Don't like the price or SLA, then don't pay for it.

Are you enoying living in the mid-nineties? I'm afraid the rest of us have moved on a bit.

Re: licencing nightmare

Please be quiet. You are missing the point...You don't need to worry about this with Azure. If you are happy with the price, you pay it and take the services....

Re: licencing nightmare

Again, you are missing the point.. The article is talking about writing apps that run on Windows Mobile, and connect to the Azure service, which is run by Microsoft.

Yes, the developer needs a licence for Windows 7, but if he or she has bought a PC in the last year or so, they have that. As noted above, you can download Visual Studio express for free, so a licence isn't a problem there either.

As for the data center. Assuming Azure runs on Windows (I think it does, but can't be bothered to check), Microsoft develop and run Azure. Microsoft develop Windows. Do you really think they are going to have a problem licencing it?

You might want to try reading the article.

Microsoft has been explaining how Windows Azure did NOT cause the total collapse of the Miss Hong Kong online and mobile voting system last Sunday:
