This is bizarre. If I go to the SkyDrive site, I get a completely localised (Dutch) page touting the advantages of Live SkyDrive (in other words, it's not a generic 'Live Beta Page' translation). But when I click 'Start Sharing,' I get the message that it's
not available for my region.
Good job guys. Not allowing a certain location access because the product isn't localised is wacky enough, but localising a product for a location you're not supporting is even more incredible.
I just found this on their blog, it appears the only new countries are the UK and India (doesn't explain why you got a Dutch page though):
