Ashlee Vance in a long and interesting article about Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer has this choice quote:
>“When you talk to other entrepreneurs and tell them you’re using Microsoft’s cloud services, they look at you like you have leprosy,” says Jeremy Howard, chief scientist at Kaggle, a San Francisco startup that runs data analytics contests.

No matter how good Microsoft services are they should be spending every ounce of energy to change this type perception — because it can be said about more products that just Microsoft’s cloud products.
