Again... an absence of a specific statement does not indicate the opposite... and no matter how much trolling you do doesn't change it.

If you wanted to get really conspiratorial... why expand your paranoia to something like:

Clearly then Microsoft is preparing to kill IIS, SQL Server, SMB and even Windows Server because almost anything you can do on-premises you can now do in the cloud with Azure... Microsoft has said nothing about the ability to host on-premises web sites or servers in the next decade... clearly they are going to kill it!

Entirely in the realm of possibility. Especially if we are talking about the time-frame of the next decade.

The regular Small Business Server was killed after Office 365 was set-up. Microsoft gave a huge middle-finger to all the protests and objections.
