The world of cloud computing has received a lot of attention recently, in no small part due to Microsoft’s announcement of the Windows Azure platform. A few weeks ago, many readers of this blog expressed doubts around cloud computing, while other readers think it’s a great idea.

My personal belief is that cloud computing has a possible role to play, and that most of the reasons why it is not widely adopted are business reasons and not technical ones. As the comfort level increases, I expect to see more programmers use cloud computing; others out there disagree. I’m curious to see if there are any “silent majorities” amongst the readers.

Take this quick poll to let me know whether you plan to use (or are already using) cloud computing.
