I just finished reading a great article1¬†outlining the difference between Google and Microsoft’s approaches to cloud computing and how, as one company that switched from Virtual Earth to Google Maps put it, it all comes down to speed, speed, speed.

I’m not very big into virtuilization/cloud computing just yet, but with companies like Red Hat posting profits in an otherwise bear market, and with the advent of (mostly) free cloud computing platforms like Google’s App Engine, I’m definatly going to find an excuse to develop at least one test project in the cloud.
