Check out the following new Microsoft AJAX (or ATLAS) enabled web sites:
The Landing Page: Windows Live Ideas
Some of the offerings:
- Create a custom portal page for yourself (similar to my.yahoo.com portal or Google’s Personalized Home)
- Windows Gadgets can be added to your custom “live” page
- Favorites you can take with you (perhaps like del.icio.us)
- This just may be better then google maps.
- Virus, system cleanup, and system tune up
Windows Live Mail
Windows Live Messenger
I haven’t had time to try all of these yet, but I was impressed with the Windows Live Local. Other offerings coming soon from Microsoft are Office Live and Xbox Live.
