Possible Game Changer from Microsoft

Creating an interface where normal business users can build an application without learning to program is the golden goose.  Microsoft seemed to think Access was that product many years ago, here's their next evolution of it (I think).  Beta is available August 23rd.  Can't wait to take a test drive!

Uploading Access to SQL Azure

Microsoft has just released an update to the SQL Server Migration Assistant (SSMA) that allows you to load your Access database into the Azure cloud.  Haven't tried it yet, but please post a reply if you have.  Would love to see what your experience has been.  And specifically, how have you front-ended the database?  With ASP.NET, or just continue to use the Access client with linked tables.
