I was stoked to launch Visual Studio 2010 for the first time and see in the Information bar a listing for 'cloud.'
"This can only mean one thing" I thought. "Cloud services are actually a first class citizen in Visual Studio 2010! Finally."
Well, not completely. If you click on New Project, there is a Cloud Services project type, but it only has one project in it ... wait .. how is that ... Oh. I see. That's not a project, it's a link to download the Azure tools. Aah well.
Nonetheless, i I hear that the Ultimate edition of visual Studio comes with 750 hours of Azure compute time. That should give people a reason to download and give it a try. I know I will.
