It has been an interesting week for soccer fans as the European championship soccer started in Poland/Ukraine. For Windows Azure adapets it has been a week to remember as several announcements on Windows Azure were made. Microsoft hosted a live streaming event with Scott Guthrie 7th of June from San Francisco (Meet the New Windows Azure). In coming weeks you can expect Wiki articles on new services like:

These are exciting new services available on Windows Azure.
Another important release in coming months will be Windows 8. The release preview is currently available. Windows 8 is the new desktop, yet we will also see the release of Windows Server 2012 (Release Candidate is available). Last but least we might see releases of a new Office and SharePoint version (code named Office 15 and SharePoint 15) at the end of this year. Microsoft will be probably try to make them available as Beta in June around TechEd’s (US is June 11-14, and Europe is June 26-29). During the events more of these and other products (i.e. Exchange 15, Visual Studio 2012) and technologies will be revealed. These major releases will result in a plethora of Wiki articles that will further enrich the TechNet Wiki.
