    The Discussion

      Another quality video! So many features still to discover in the new portal. As a windows phone user, I was immediately won over by the ability to pin tiles in quite a superficial way but on reflection I think the UX is almost perfect - the whole process seems much more aligned to what I want to do rather than a view of what I've got.

      Great job.

      Congratulations. From the video it looks like the developers of this portal have managed to create another Windows 8 UI interface. I can't wait for the next version of the portal when all the sliding tile functionality is removed and you go back to an interface that developer who don't work on touch screen tables and phones can use.

      1) When is new version of "Start Board" & "Hanselminutes" (like) planned for PUBLIC use/preview?
      2) Will these be FREE to all users or they will be paid-subscription(s)
      3) Within "Browse" option on left, why "SQL Server" & "MySQL Databases" are categorized into two and not one as "Databases"
      4) Vishal Joshi - At 12:30 you said you created a video. Can you please URL to that Video?
      5) If I PIN all $ tiles on "Start Board", can I group them such that I can have multiple groups?
         Money Groups - Tiles to list all Money
         Error Logs   - Tiles to list all ERROR Logs and messgaes

      1) When is new version of "Start Board" & "Hanselminutes" (like) planned for PUBLIC use/preview? - It is already available.  you can go to http://portal.azure.com and create your own.  If you face any difficulty let us know.
      2) Will these be FREE to all users or they will be paid-subscription(s)  - It is free to all users.  You need subscriptions to create new services like website, db etc, but there are free trial subscriptions available too
      3) Within "Browse" option on left, why "SQL Server" & "MySQL Databases" are categorized into two and not one as "Databases" - Currently they are provided by two different partners.  SQL Server is from Microsoft and MySQL is from ClearDB.  Each owner gets their own item in the browse list but eventually we will work on grouping these once the list gets longer.
      4) Vishal Joshi - At 12:30 you said you created a video. Can you please URL to that Video? - http://aka.ms/azurepreview
      5) If I PIN all $ tiles on "Start Board", can I group them such that I can have multiple groups?
         Money Groups - Tiles to list all Money
         Error Logs   - Tiles to list all ERROR Logs and messgaes

      -Eventually yes we are going to build startboard groups which will allow you to do so but currently it is not doable.

      @RichardAlan: We are going to continue working on making the portal touch and mobile friendly.  It works on touch, not so well on mobile but that certainly on the roadmap.  Thanks so much for the feedback.
