How/why would using Azure be better?

If you have easy access to the client's server (for setup/maintenance/troubleshooting) such as through VPN, Azure may not be beneficial or preferable. Also, if this is a one-off or the data source is on-premise, I wouldn't consider Azure.

Consider though if you wanted to offer your software as a service to other clients through your own customized domain name? Another benefit is that you are not subject to upgrade/replacement cycles of your clients. Also, it puts you in control of recurring revenue...no pay, no play. Smile | :)

On which operating systems are you writing code?
Let's see if things have changed since we last ran this. "writing code" meaning editing, building, and running the code on that OS.
