As I start the process of evaluating Windows Azure as the next platform for my blog, I’ve had some conversations with my colleagues who’ve made the move to Windows Azure and they’re generally quite happy.  While I’m told the performance of the site on the Azure is awesome, there are a good number of differences in the platform, namely the ability to use WordPress as the platform and MySQL as the database where the content is stored.  One of my colleagues, Maria Naggaga, has written a few articles on this topic I’d recommend you take a look at.  She covers a few relevant topics in this area, so go ahead and take a look!

Enjoy!
