At the recently concluded PDC 2008 , MS launched Microsoft Azure ; a host of on demand services.

With various changes in the internet shelf of Microsoft, like introduction of Live Services, Skydrive, Office Workspace it was soon becoming ominous that MS shall be launching a new framework for the developer community to embrace.
