Ok, I guess I am not getting what is going on here?
Azure is MS's cloud application I take it but I guess I don't understand what the goal is.

Their goal is to make sure that XOOPS runs on Azure.

I am sure that XOOPS would benefit from being customized/optimized to take advantage of Azure.

The nice thing is that XOOPS was one of the selected systems for the competition, showing that we have a good reputation out there

I need to install on Azure. Are there any special things I should take notice of ?
As far as I know the Azure DB system is mysql compatible, so should I expect problems?

We obviously got XOOPS on Azure as Bitnami is offering it, but was there anything special done ?

Thanks and have a great new 2015!

No, we didn't do anything special for Azure, so please test it and see if it works for you.
