I guess you're modded up because you sound interesting, but really? I'm not trying to be insulting but do you know what you are talking about?
This article is a little old but AWS really is that far ahead of everyone else.
Plus, in terms of services and features, AWS is also ahead.
Now where Azure has benefit is if you're an MS shop and you want to just outsource your entire backoffice. But if you're developing....AWS has a lot more features than Azure, if you know what you're doing. No, you can't throw together a .NET wizard-based project, but if you're using an open source stack, or more of a LAMP-like MVC environment (python, rubyonrails, etc) then AWS throws so many tools for you to use (RDS, Dynamo, S3, etc) then its hard to see how you DON'T think AWS is a good environment for developers.
And what do you mean by "Platform Issues"?
And actually, all the enterprise developers I've worked with are looking more at AWS than Azure (not that I'm some sort of worldwide development expert or anything).
