Windows Live Programs

Most of us are running Windows computers, I have been the lone Linux holdout unwilling to give M$ my money. But I took M$ up on its Family package (3 installs of Family Premium) and have been looking over the Windows only services available for a change. windows_live

A visit to Live.com lists an a number of services I think anyone can find useful the most obvious is Skydrive and Live Mesh.

Live Mesh is a Dropbox.com sync service with 5 gigs of space available free. It’s like having 5 gig memory stick available anytime, anywhere you have an Internet connection. SkyDrive is 25 gigs of space which you can’t (for free) sync, but you can store files with a simple upload. Not a bad deal for free.

Come to the EPCUG meeting Monday Dec. 27 and see if this service is useful for you.
