Windows Client VMs Now Available for Azure Dev/Test Scenarios

Azure has been strictly for servers, not desktop clients until now. Running Windows 7 or 8 in an Azure VM is technically a violation of the Windows license.

Microsoft has recognized that as developers, we sometimes need a client for testing purposes. Starting this week, MSDN subscribers can now spin up a Windows 7 or 8.1 client VM and use it for testing purposes.
