Live push

Interestingly, I’ve just come across this Live@edu site from Microsoft. IT appears to basically be the application of the Microsoft Live Services to the education market. Basically it is out sourcing a lot of the common IT components of education (emails, storage, etc) directly to Microsoft.

 

Can anyone else see where Microsoft is going with this? What’s to stop them offering Live for small business, medium business and even enterprise business? Nothing. I must say that I do use a lot of Live services and find they work really, really well so they get the thumbs up from me and I say bring on more Live services.
