Inside Windows Live – A new official blog on engineering behind Windows Live


For everything related to Windows Live, there was the official Windows Live Team Blog called Windows LiveWire which used to consolidated blogging efforts for all of the different Windows Live teams into a single blog. Now another official blog called Inside Windows Live has started which will complement the Windows team Blog. This blog will be a part of The Windows Blog.

Inside Windows Live Blog will not only bring more details about what new things are coming up, but also why and how.

The new blog “will be dedicated to software engineers, web industry insiders, and to our most passionate Windows Live customers, those who want to dig a little deeper into how we build our services and how they’re used worldwide.”

The blog will start by giving the current state of Windows Live software and services, including Hotmail, Messenger, SkyDrive, and Essentials suite of client software.

The new blog hosted on The Windows blog will give better options for monitoring and gathering feedback—via comments, direct mail, and even hosted IM conversations.

Chris Jones,Corporate Vice President, Windows Live will himself will be blogging regularly along with the lead engineers on his engineering team, who will be able to give deeper insights into each of the products they work on.

This is a nice initiative and instead of getting rumors on the products on the net, one can get authentic info related to Windows Live.

Here’s the link to the new Blog- Inside Windows Live  - The engineering behind Hotmail, Messenger and Windows Live
