[News] Is Windows Live Officially a Dead-end Project?

Will Berkowitz keep Windows Live?

,----[ Quote ]
| At the risk of moving this article over to the opinion blog, many
| of the problems Berkowitz faces were caused not by too much focus
| on technical wizardry, but by a lack of clear direction, both fo
| MSN and for Windows Live.


Hear, hear. These chairs are breaking.

Very recently:

Sources: Several Windows Live Projects Halted

| Microsoft's Windows Live desktop search project has been
| shelved "indefinitely," although not much reasoning has been
| given as to the reason for its demise.


Ozzie: Vista, Office must adapt to Web era

| Ozzie said that the transition to integrate online services into Microsoft 
| products has been a challenge but that changes within the company are 
| happening.


Will Web 2.0 ultimately kill Windows?

|  Allchin shared his thoughts on Windows Live (which, along with Windows and 
| developer tools also falls under his organization); competition with Google 
| and Apple; and why a client-based version of Windows won?t ever completely 
| disappear, regardless of how successful Web services become.


MSN Still Going Nowhere Fast

,----[ Quote ]
| It is worth noting that Microsoft still hasn't made any headway
| in the search-and-portal game and, in fact, is falling farther andf
| arther behind. As a result, it is not surprising that Steve Ballmer
| is now warning media companies that Google is the Evil Empire --
| because no other competitive tactic has worked.

| "...Developers hope that it will be a major step toward making Web
| applications indistinguishable from programs that are installed on
| the desktop, Schroepfer said."


Why I hate the new Windows Live Mail

,----[ Quote ]
| Microsoft is currently in Beta on Windows Live Mail. Personally I think
| it is a steaming pile of garbage. The 'new and improved' email is
| nothing more than a fancier interface and more color options.
| [...]
| If you have not upgraded from standard I suggest you DO NOT. This is
| a typical product from Microsoft even though it is in beta. I think
| it should still be in alpha testing personally because at times I cannot
| even access my email which is most annoying when there might be
| time-sensitive documents in it. If you depend on your hotmail account
| for important emails I suggest looking into another option, like Gmail
| or even Yahoo. There are ZERO improvements in this deal and there is
| absolutely no reason to even think about moving to it until they force
| everyone to and even then I would consider just forwarding all the email
| to another account.
| Where is the 'undo' button so I can go back to the old Hotmail?
