OpenBSD Virtual Machine
I would love to see an OpenBSD virtual machine, we use OpenBSD along side windows and would be interested in moving our entire cloud services to you if there was an OpenBSD virtual machine
We continue to look to providing additional OS variations.

Now bring your OpenBSD workload to Azure:)

I agree, OpenBSD would be very welcome in Azure. I suspect much of the integration work needed is on the OpenBSD side as their legacy NIC drivers will not work as is. Since Microsoft shifted Services for UNIX from Interix over to OpenBSD binaries, I suspect they have the relationships and contacts in OpenBSD to drive this. I am looking for a VXLAN unicast solution to bridge layer 2 traffic, and OpenBSD does a brilliant job of this.

I would also love to run OpenBSD on Azure.

Yup +100 from my side.
A lot of ISVs got some great (virtual) appliance based solutions running on OpenBSD.
My company being one of them.
When a customer asks me: Can I run your virtual appliance on HyperV or Azure, I regretfully need to inform them that unlike other Cloud solutions, Microsoft doesnt support OpenBSD.
Customers find that odd, but understand, and then choose to run a "foreign" Virtual solution next to their Azure or HyperV.

FreeBSD is not supported officially, but works:
However, I, too would like to see OpenBSD. FYI, Azure is about the only place you can't run OpenBSD. People run it on Amazon EC2 and any VPS provider that offers VM.
