Introduction

Well, as the name suggests, it is not an online version of Microsoft’s venerable operating system. It is a kind of a new type of web-based Microsoft Live Communication Server, or you can say an enhancement of the services developed by MSN.

Windows Live consists of eight or so Web-based services designed for customers. It consists of services like mail, online-messenger, online folder sharing, Internet telephony, etc.

The most striking examples of Windows Live is ways of of tying it with desktop. People could share files-folders with the instant-messaging buddies and use the ww.Live.com page to view not only the Web-contents but also the things like recently opened documents or corporate SharePoint portal.

Live.com and Gadgets

Although customizing Live.com is not as easy as it should be due to skills and steps required to add custom gadgets to it, but the personalization features offered by it are far more than that of Yahoo! or even Google. Imagine, you can use the same point to view your corporate portal from home, access files from your office PC in another country or even check mails, send messages to your buddies and share file-folders with them, all from same point. Microsoft has promised to ensure that adding gadgets will be as easy as dragging and dropping a link on a site, but at the moment it is not as easy. People have to go to www.microsoftgadgets.com, copy a special URL, then go back to Live.com, and follow a series of “advanced options”. Gadgets have an important place in Windows Vista and Windows Live as Microsoft plans to use them throughout with no difference. The same gadget can also be used in Windows Vista. Microsoft also plans to use gadgets to retrieve locally stored information from PC to the Live.com web-page. Gadgets are actually small applications like Web-parts but they mainly consist of an XML-based manifest file, JavaScript (containing the entry point), and a CSS file. Live.com uses the Atlas framework to extend the JavaScript functionality. Live.com is designed to take things one step further. It allows people not only to view web contents and personalize them but also to save search queries as well as data from their PCs.

Windows Live Messenger

You just have to drop a file on top of a contact which will allow you to create a shared folder. This folder will exist on both the member’s desktop, and stay up-to-date with any changes to the shared file.
