    A preview of Windows Live for Windows 8

    Last week we released the developer preview of Windows 8 (WDP) at the //BUILD conference. While we covered a lot in the keynote, I wanted to provide folks who’ve been following our services for some time with a quick summary of what we talked about and what’s coming next. Windows 8 provides us with an opportunity to reimagine our applications and services in a new context of user interaction and the power of connected apps. Across our teams we have been building applications and services with Windows 8 in mind. In particular, we took the bold steps of:
    Enhancing our Live service for sync across your PCs
    Making a SkyDrive available to every Windows 8 and Windows Phone customer
    Building a new suite of Metro style apps for communications and sharing
    And enabling app developers to use Live and SkyDrive through the Live SDK

    Looks interesting and a bit scary at the same time.

    Don't think I want a lot of personal info "out there", guess we'll all have to decide what we put where.
