longer trial period. AWS gives a YEAR. Why would I not chose AWS over azure to start out? I wouldn't, trial isn't long enough.
People need more time. I work 12hr days programming and don't have a lot of extra time to get used to azure. The ONE day in this trial period I did use it, I found it easy and liked it. Unfortunately, with my limited time to use it, my "trail" runs out tomorrow. I'll be going with AWS.
