Microsoft is (A)Live

After playing second fiddle to Google in internet era Microsoft realised its time to pull up the socks and take the competition head on. So taking the charge for the internet assault Microsoft has taken the services of Ray ozzie, force behind the lotus notes, so was born the idea of Microsoft Live services.

Though most of the services are still in beta stage and hence unavailable there is definately lots of excitement built around them. One of the most exciting is the launch of Microsoft Office live where if you have the domain man you can the email accounts with that particular domain name also it provides the option for small business to have their own domain and mail ids free of cost. Giving away free stuff was never Microsoft cup of tea but neverthless they have realised the importance of internet. But to shake up Google will not be easy.
