Part 3 of the 31 day series on Windows Azure IaaS has arrived!  As I mentioned previously, the 31 Days of Windows Servers (VMs) in the Cloud series is under way and either myself or one of my peers will be putting together an article on Windows Azure IaaS each and every day for the month of January.  The intent of this series is to educate and inform the IT Pro on Windows Azure and give you deep insight into this platform.

The January 3rd edition by Tommy Patterson went live on his blog - 31 Days of Servers in the Cloud – Supported Virtual Machine Operating Systems in the Microsoft Cloud (Part 3 of 31) In this third edition of the series, Tommy walks you through the various OS options when creating a virtual machine (Step-By-Step) on Windows Azure.  The blog post covers which operating systems are supported in Windows Azure, Microsoft’s Public Cloud built for running virtual machines.  At present Microsoft Azure currently supports a good number of different operating systems, including multiple versions of Windows Server, as well as several Linux variants such as Ubuntu and CentOs.
