So Windows Live Beta is now out of beta and is called “Windows Live” which was a mind blower, thought microsoft would try to change it to a cooler name or something. All jokes aside this collection of programs are actually pretty useful, things like the movie maker are individual specific, but a service such as SkyDrive which offers I think up to 5GB Free Cloud Storage can’t be topped, I currently am attempting to get a Dropbox solution going on with my computers so that all of my day-to-day data is synced across machines but because of the 2 GB limitation on Dropbox, I think I will seriously consider using SkyDrive some how as a place to store my work files.
