Microsoft Ajax Content Delivery Network: jQuery and jQuery UI

The Microsoft Ajax Content Delivery Network (CDN) enables developer to add popular javascript plug-in directly from Microsoft's server instead of uploading on your server. As lot of other web developers will be using same scripts from CDN; therefore there are high chances that these files will be cached on different servers around the world and give performance edge to your website as well. Along this, another level cache advantage is user's cache as it is possible that user already visited a site which also used these scripts from CDN and no more need to download for your website.

I believe it's a good step from Microsoft to facilitate developer and it's a strategic move as by this way Microsoft can gain control over changes in these files. As time goes and people will start these files from CDN, Microsoft will be in dominated position to propose changes in these files that supports their frameworks.
