    Because it doesn't run on anything except Windows and iPhone, has bloated crappy software, and spend more time jerking off to Microsoft's other offerings (e.g. Office) than it does providing a good product. 

    It runs in every browser I've tried (HTML5), and they're working on an Android app for it.

    okay i probably should've put it to its paces a bit more...

    1) the file size limit needs to be increased. 100Mb isn't really usable for video

    2) moving files around is a bit fiddly

    3) desperately needs a way to batch upload/download

    4) the folder sync (mesh) is limited to only 5Gb,

    but still, I think it's useful for music and photos. hopefully these things will be tweaked in the future.

    I agree with all of your points. First on the list should be #3, followed by #4. I'm not sure why they put a limit on file size. I guess to prevent it being used to pirate movies?

    It looks like Windows 8 will place Skydrive in the spotlight, so hopefully they can address these items before then.
