Windows 7 + Windows Live: to the Cloud!

By Sunshine | Posted November 16, 2010 14 comments

There’s a new Windows 7 + Windows Live website showing off Windows Live’s capabilities in the cloud.

There’s lots to explore on the site! As you can see the site is divided in 3 sections:

In each of these  sections you will find howto videos. And if you are through with those you can go watch the video ads via the link (bottom right) on main page. Enjoy!To the Cloud

“To the Cloud with Windows Live. To create and share. Anywhere.”

    Nice! I do hope, in Windows 8, they will include Windows Live Essentials with it.

      Antitrust regulation in either EU and US won’t ever allow that. Microsoft doesn’t want to get into trouble anymore.

        But Apple includes Safari and iLife with Macs, so why can’t Microsoft include WL Essentials with Windows 8?

        • Abgar

          Apple has negligible market share in the ‘desktop’ OS field.. so the regulators don’t care as much. Now in a few years when iOS becomes even more dominant and competitors start complaining Apple will be in the regulators field of view… ITS JUST HOW IT WORKS.. fair or not.

    Finally, a user-friendly site that can begin to explain the concept of the “cloud” to average users. You know, we overestimate people’s ability to understand “the cloud” as everything that we’ve become to believe it to be.

    anyone else notice that they upped the cloud storage to 5 GB? That’s nice, but still not as nice as the 10 gig from the old Mesh.

      Yes, Liveside reported this here a couple of months ago. Btw, you are mistaken…the old Mesh “Beta” included 5GB too (see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Live_Mesh#Live_Mesh_Beta). Prior to the final release of Windows Live Essentials 2011, the integrated Live Mesh capability supported 2GB. The community here at Liveside argued that Microsoft should at least provide parity with the old Mesh Beta….which they eventually did.
