Thoughts, about stuff

Live Mesh moves into the Windows team

with 3 comments

Mary-Jo Foley is reporting that Live Mesh is going to move under the head of Windows and Windows Live, Steven Sinofsky. This is really great news, moving Live Mesh into the biggest profit centre in the company must mean that Live Mesh has a big future and is going to become a core part of the biggest platform Microsoft offer. I’d love to think that we were going to see Windows 7 leverage some of Live Mesh but I suspect that the timescales aren’t going to match up; hence I predict we’ll see lots of Live Mesh features in Windows 7 SP1.

  1. Let the meshification begin! I’m ready to start see meshed applications start appearing. Imagine a whole suite of software that runs on any device to which I have access.

  2. I, too, think this is great news. I wonder, though, if they’ll build Mesh stuff into Windows 7 itself, or if it will become more a part of Windows Live Essentials. Maybe they’ll finally unify Mesh with Live Sync (the application formerly known as FolderShare).

  3. Wow. Let it roll. I can’t wait to see what it’s all about.
