Win 7 Ultimate 64-bit. SP1.
Live Mesh: It's alive!

One of the questions about Microsoft I get most often is whatever happened to Live Mesh.

Yes, itís still in beta. But no one talks about it any more. Are more updates coming? Is it being supplanted by other technology? Iíve tried asking quite a few Softies ó even Chief Software Architect Ray Ozzie, who made Live Mesh his pet project ó to no avail.

But just when I was about to give up hope and add Live Mesh to my Microsoft deadpool, look what surfaced over on LiveSide.Net. On February 22, LiveSide posted a bunch of new screen shots (via and information about some of the long-awaited Windows Live Wave 4 services. Live Mesh ó which may be renamed officially to Windows Live Sync, according to Livesideís information ó is what I found most interesting.
