re: Microsoft Is The Apple Of PaaS
Joe is talking knowledgeably about where software responsibility lies (or doesn't lie) in the cloud, an issue that's not going away. It will become paramount as production systems move toward being hosted by cloud service providers. The cloud has to be a much more standard environment than the typical enterprise data center. Cloud providers other than Microsoft have a shot at this, but Microsoft has an inherent advantage when it comes to a standardized and well-maintained platform as a service. It's going to show in the long run.

re: Microsoft Is The Apple Of PaaS
Wouldn't Salesforce Force.com have a similar integrated stack advantage, at least for the apps that fit within their framework?

re: Microsoft Is The Apple Of PaaS
Yes, although I put those in a separate category ("Proprietary PaaS") and generally view them as a bad idea, unless you're getting something from the proprietary aspect. (e.g., PropertyBase, which leverages Salesforce's brand and contacts).

re: Microsoft Is The Apple Of PaaS
Microsoft is trying to grow up as a PaaS provider. In some ways, PaaS represents the most mature thinking inside Microsoft. It's not chasing after other people's customers (a la touch screens) and it knows its business value. See Mark Russinovich remarks here.
