Microsoft Opens Live Mesh Beta

Clarification from Paul Thurrott; see the full post for a pointer to a more detailed Mesh review

Some reports have mistakenly compared Live Mesh to Apple's lackluster and buggy MobileMe service.  In fact, the two services have little in common beyond the cloud computing marketing umbrella they both employ: MobileMe is designed as a central clearing house for PIM and email data, designed mostly for the iPhone, while Live Mesh is a complete platform that is currently oriented around storage synchronization. Put another way, it will soon be possible for developers to build numerous MobileMe-type services on top of Live Mesh, but the reverse is not true.
