Microsoft delivers 'almost ready' Azure cloud [theregister.co.uk]

Windows Azure will come in four sizes of virtual machine, starting at $0.12 per service hour and with 1.75Gb of memory. The Azure virtual machines are priced the same as Amazon's own Windows service, but Microsoft has squeezed in an additional virtual machine SKU - called medium and charged at $0.24 per service hour and with 3.5Gb of memory.

But Amazon's Linux service still undercuts Azure.
