In the last year or so, many developers have become much more willing to try various cloud deployment systems such as Amazon's EC2 and Microsoft's Windows Azure. I recently started a brief experiment with Azure (at the time of this writing, the jury is still out). I like many aspects of the cloud deployment scenario (particularly for pure computation because it scales well), but I'm not sold on the economics of it for a number of reasons. Regardless of my misgivings, I was willing to give it a try. What about you?
