Update: Techcrunch has a full write up.
Looks like the sleeping giant has finally woken up. Microsoft has just launched Windows Live, taking a first step into the feed arena among other things. They’ve also said that they’re also going to add a bunch of other online services, to faciliate project management, expense reports and billing. Michale Arrington at CrunchNotes has live blogged the launch event for your enjoyment.
This looks like the beginning of Microsofts foray into software as services, it’ll be interesting to see the battle between Google, Yahoo! and Microsoft over the coming months. For the customer this can only be a good thing, more competition brings interesting services (at least for now).
