    I have to see more coming out of Mesh than the file synching application it is now, before I'd consider it a technology innovatin or achievement. I know what is promised (the video with Ori Amiga was great), and if that happens, it'll truely blow me away, but right now all the little blue orb in my system tray does is synch my visual studio projects, and that's hardly innovative.

    All it did for me was give continuous warnings about Mesh RDP not being installed and failing to install it, give update notifications every few hours even though there were no updates available, sync considerably slower than FolderShare aka. Live Sync, and failing to sync my OneNote Notebooks folder correctly. So I switched back to Live Sync.

    Have to agree. Until it actually does something useful for a large group of people, then it's really a proof of concept.
