What can you do with your Windows Live ID?
I’m often asked why I spend so much of my time talking about Windows Live and why I like the products and services so much. The answer I give is always something along these lines:
Not all of the products and services accessible with a Windows Live ID are best-of-breed but viewed as a whole all those products and services are far far greater than the sum of their parts. Windows Live ID is a key that unlocks more doors than any other closed identity system on the internet.
With that in mind I thought it would be useful to explore specifically which doors your Windows Live ID can open. Over the next few weeks I’ll produce a series of blog entries that talk about some of these doors and I’ll link to them all below. I don’t yet know how many I’m going to have, time will tell.
