PDC 2008

So PDC 2008 has finaly started, Ray Ozzie, held his keynote, watch it at http://microsoftpdc.com/. In the keynote he announced how Microsoft is launching their global cloud services Windows Azure.
Windows Azure is not a server OS that any of us is going to be installing. This is a hosting environment, is microsoft going into the hosting market, are they trying to be the center node for bussiness applications and services?
Windows Azure is a could based scalable hosting services for Microsofts main technologies, SQL Services, .NET Services, Live Services, Sharepoint Services and MS Dynamics CRM.
Is this a sleeping gigant or just a new Passport thingi? Swedish IDG has writen an article bout this.

I wonder if we could run EPiServer webs in Win Azure :P
