I have decided to also replicate the content of this blog over to my Microsoft Live Space. I am doing this mainly because both Blogger and Live Spaces allow publishing via e-mail.
I will add that I am really quite impressed with many of the new set of tools from Microsoft. I am writing this in Windows Live Writer (the best blog editing tool for Windows in my opinion), and I think that the Live Photo Gallery application is very nice. The changes to Live Sync, Mesh and Folder Share are nice.
I might need to spend a bit of time investigating the whole suite of Microsoft services, although I doubt I will leave Google.
