So what IS the deal with Windows Live for Macs?

Last week, as Microsoft began to open up a bit about Windows Live Wave 4, Corporate Vice President Chris Jones offered up an interesting list of Wave 4 clients:

We will then roll out updates to our web services, followed by betas of our software for Windows PCs, Macs, and phones.

Michael Gillett (Gilly2468 to LiveSide readers) over at My Microsoft Life picked up on the Mac mention, and noted more from another LiveSide reader Lituus, who tweeted:

WLE for Mac to bring Messenger & Sync, along with Skydrive plug-ins for iMovie & iPhoto? Writer remains exclusive to PCs.

Interesting speculation, indeed.  There’s already a Messenger for Mac, and Live Mesh for Mac, so this could be not much more than a re-packaging to bring them in line with the rest of Windows Live, or could it be more than that?  Could we see Windows Live on Macs, on iPhones, or even (gasp) on iPads?

Just one more thing to wait for, hopefully we’ll be getting more answers and fewer questions soon.
