I`m starting to use Visual studio 2012 and what a deception to see that when I select publish for my project, it does not have any profile and just offer me info about Windows azure..
What the hell happened, I can`t publish somewhere else than azure?

I googled and I saw some article where they have existing publish profile but in my case I have none. and when I clisk on Publish as you see in my screenshot it ask me to select a profile which I dont have`.
I found mention about some .pubxml file which I don't have also and no instruction on how to create some.
Is someone can help me

That's absolutely untrue. You can publish to other servers different from Azure.

When publishing a new web project, press over the empty combobox (Select or import a publish profile) and choose the "<New...>" option, then provide a name for the new profile.
After that, you can edit the Connection and Settings tab, for a variety of publishing methods including Web Deploy, FPT, File System and FPSE.
