Thought this was kind of cool, and worth sharing here:

You can now use a Gallery Image to deploy a Minecraft server on Azure!

"This gallery package will set up a preconfigured Minecraft server running on Ubuntu Server 14.04 LTS. You can connect to it using the DNS name (e.g. name.cloudapp.net) of the virtual machine on port 25565"

To put it on azure? No, the reason will become clear when we announce something pretty cool next year.

I think you missed the joke/sarcasm. But yes, it would not be just to put on Azure.

Is Windows 10 actually going to be minedows, you run applications by building them out of blocks, the UI is dynamically changeable because it is actually all blocks. Were the tiles really side on blocks all the time?
