Microsoft and WordPress – I Knew it !
Well, almost … :-)
Although yesterday’s Announcement by Microsoft that they are going to partner with WordPress to replace the Windows Live Spaces blogging platform, was quite a surprise, my intuition seemed to be moving me in that direction. Over the past few weeks and months I have taken an interest in WordPress – I even attended the WordCamp event here earlier this month. I’ve been impressed with the product and the people. I’ll definitely be delving into this further.
Another hint of things to come that had caught my addition was the support of WordPress blogs on the MS Azure platform:
