I am SO glad that finally someone touched on Microsoft's sites and branding being ridiculously redundant and complex.... I'm even happier that someone from inside Microsoft touched on it.
I've hated the "Windows Live" branding for some time.... I think MSN made sense... it's a Microsoft Network.... but those websites weren't Windows. In fact, I've long been an MSN user and Windows Live user, but I have a Mac. Bing is a good move... so either pick Bing or MSN... or each to be accessible by the other.
Hopefully more sites get this same treatment... and hopefully we finally get rid of Windows Live Hotmail and maybe either get Hotmail back, get MSN Hotmail, or Bing Mail.
