In early 2010 I “complained” about the way we were explaining the Windows Azure Platform on our web site and pointed at a (IMHO) much better way of doing it by one of our competitors.
A lot has changed since early 2010 and we now have some great resources – one of the best being “the super-slidy Windows Azure Pricing Calculator”.
It comes highly recommended

P.S. and well done to the folks who created it!
