Windows Live

Windows Live launched today, proving that Microsoft can do Javascript + XML as well as any of the other hyped “Web 2.0” developers. I am interested in this for two reasons: 1. I’m watching Microsoft’s Social Bookmarks strategy (or lack of one), and 2. I want to get my hands on a real Javascript development environment and a comprehensive, consistent, and powerful set of Javascript libraries (when I get a chance, I’ll dig deeper into those that power Windows Live).

Update:

I follow how live.com is a shift to delivering applications in an open and standarized manner (IE via Javascript and HTML), but I don’t follow how it represents a change to a services business. Is it because the goals of Microsoft (the software company) and MSN (the user community services) are now aligned?
