Microsoft's Live - A new look at seamless Internet

Windows Live and Microsoft Office Live - these are the two new software-based services previewed by Microsoft - designed to deliver rich and seamless experiences to individuals and small businesses, they combine the power of software plus services and provide compelling enhancements to Windows and Office products.

Windows Live will be a set of personal Internet services and software designed to bring together in one place all of the relationships, information and interests people care about most, with more safety and security features across their PC, devices and the Web.

Microsoft Office Live offerings will provide small businesses with an affordable set of Internet-based business services hosted by Microsoft to help them establish, manage and grow their business through a professional digital identity as well as collaboration and business management tools that traditionally have required dedicated server and IT resources to operate.

Windows Live will include:

1. Windows Live Mail.
2. Windows Live Messenger.
3. Windows Live Favorites
4. Windows Live for mobile devices
5. Windows Live Safety Center
6. Windows Live Search.
7. Windows OneCare Live

More details about Windows Live are available on its site.

My Hotmail box already reflects the the change of "Mail Beta" to "Windows Live Mail" - which prompted me to have a look at this new offering. Guess there are lots and lots of domains where Microsoft is now putting its feet at. Now wasn't Xbox Live a first step towards this "Live" services? BTW I just finished checking for viruses using "Windows Live Safety Center" - and I must say - it is real good :)
