Microsoft Windows Azure PaaS, as originally defined, was created to serve two roles -- Web and worker.As with any PaaS system, Azure was designed to be flexible.  In fact it has been tailored to work with many development paradigm including Java, Tomcat, JBoss, PHP, Python, Ruby on Rails, etc.But in trying to do so much, some feel that Microsoft has lost the original vision for Azure.What do you think?  Is Microsoft trying to do too much with Azure and in doing so, leaving most users to feel like second-class citizens?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

I don’t think they are trying to do too much; they have to provide a broad spectrum of services in order to compete in the cloud space. 

It’s also a good sign when Microsoft embraces technologies that they have not invented on their own. I take that as a positive.
