At least until Microsoft decides it is not profitable and closes it...
With that logic we'd never be using anything new and we still be writing 0's and 1's, or be stuck in the stone age because this newfangled wheel thing will never last
Anyway, Azure and the cloud have been around for a while now and since so many companies are using it, it solves real problems, and it's Microsoft's biggest cash cow I doubt it's going anywhere soon.
And if it does that means more work for me

The cloud is anything but centralized.
I can put some resources in West Europe, another in America and yet another in Asia.
Or have one resource in multiple regions for disaster failover, etc.
And there's also nothing stopping me from using Azure and AWS, except that I don't know AWS.
BTW, I retired, but after 3 weeks, my wife chased me out off the couch. I'm surprised she put up with me that long, a new record. I figure, that if GVod waNTED ME TO WORK HE'D FIND ME A JOB.

But researchers believe that after the sea levels dropped and the bird reappeared, it became flightless once again
makes it sound like the birds miraculously gained flight when the islands sank, then lost their wings again when they islands came back, which is more than a tad beyond the pale.
I'd be looking for chemical/bacterial/viral reasons for the birds losing their wings, not marvelling at how logical it all is -- because it's not logical, at all; evolution works by random mutation, not according to set formulae.
I wanna be a eunuchs developer! Pass me a bread knife!
Typical reporters not understanding evolution: just because "Species A" evolves into "Species B" that doesn't mean "Species A" automatically goes extinct. So the flightless one dies out, a "modern" version of the original population recolonizes and makes similar adaptations to the local environment. Losing the ability to fly when there are no predators around to make it necessary is common - it's an expensive ability - just look at New Zealand!

Life is much stronger than we presume. Much much stronger.
I remember going down an old ochre mine in France once. A hundred meters down the tunnel, around one of the lights (there was one every 10 meters or so) was a little osasis of small plants, little grasses and ferns, extending out say 40 cm. There was enough light for them to life, moisture, and nutrients. And they were happy doing their thing.
Life clinging on in the most tenuous of situations and yet thriving.
