Windows Live Folders live... but not so fast

By Mauricio Freitas, in , posted: 28-Jun-2007 09:10

I really don't like the way Microsoft does things, launching, but not launching. Like Windows Live Folders, an open beta which is supposed to be live now. But it's not:

Windows Live Folder not available in New Zealand
My system language is set as English (New Zealand). And no, I am not changing my system to satisfy their silly requirements.

Their loss. Let's use AOL's Xdrive instead. It offers up to 5 GB free, instead of 500 MB of Windows Live Folders.

UPDATE: To access the Windows Live Folders with US English directly use this link.
