    As far as I can see, it looks great. I mean great interface, really simple.

    But to be useful this service should offer much more storage space. I’d say a monthly limited upload would be a good solution.

    And it should also be integrated with the Windows Vista explorer.

    It looks nice, but your embed doesn’t work, maybe a precaution in CS?

    Isn’t that logo the icon for a drive with Vista installed? So wait…lol…I have Vista on my SkyDrive? jk, I think it’s good for recognitition…

    Alex – yes CS does block the embed unfortunately.

    I love the recently viewed folder, that’s really helpful. Love the service thank god it’s finally public with a good name for once

    the skydrive has come through using user comments and is properly one of the best apps (fresh) out so far from the windows live tree however you won’t see other site giving a thumbs up, whenever google comes out with a new product even if they have stole the idea off another site it still gets a mention!! don’t know why (eg live local had pushpin then google did there thing but Cnet gave google a thumbs up and they didn’t mention live local)
