PDC: Azure and Oslo

Lots of new stuff at the PDC that is going on right now.. but Windows Azure (‘Windows in the clouds’) & Oslo generate the most buzz in the developers community. Windows Azure is of course Microsoft’s response to the c2 and s3 engines of Amazon, Google’s AppEngine and a few others. Interesting, but it will take a few years before enterprise software will be hosted outside of a company’s premises, I suppose. Oslo looks like an interesting meta-modelling platform and with the new M language, Microsoft makes their offering of modelling tools a lot more compelling, I think. Not every DSL lends itself to graphical editing with blocks and lines.
