Both replies to me earlier comment mentioned vendor lock in. Is there any greater vendor lock-in then integrating AWS thousand and one services? Is it really riskier to trust MS to not kill a product then Google? Is the answer really to write everything yourself from the OS up?

I don't disagree that MS could do any of what you mentioned but I'm not sure AWS/GCP etc wouldn't be as likely to as well.

I think you misread my comment. I was talking about Windows, not Azure. As far as I know, Azure lets you run Linux on their machines, so there's no point in using Windows and locking yourself in.
