Amit Mital, General Manager of Live Mesh explains:

“Our design goals for Live Mesh are to have your devices work together, your data and applications available from anywhere, the people you need to connect with just a few clicks away for sharing and collaborating and the information you need to stay up-to-date and always be available. We’re achieving these design goals by combining the power of ‘cloud services,’ with the convenience and rich experience of your many devices.”

“This is a limited Technology Preview and we’re seeking your feedback. There’s some pent-up demand, so we appreciate your patience and understanding as we scale the system. We’ll do our best to scale as quickly as possible, but we also want to make sure the system is reliable and responsive. Second, initially the user interface will be English only and we are hosting the service from our United States data center; this may have impact on some users. We’re working on this, and will announce broader availability in the coming months. Third, this Technology Preview initially supports Windows (Vista & XP) machines but our vision of your device mesh extends far beyond this. In the near future, we’ll add support for the Mac and mobile devices, and then we’ll build upon that foundation,” Mital added.
