Better intergration needed RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • One thing I do not like about Microsoft services, is the poor intergration and cohesion between the various services...

    Live Mesh is a great service, but once again, it duplicates the features of many other Microsoft services, while not including them all...

    What I would like to see, is better cohesion between the services...have them act almost like 'modules'

    With so many Microsoft services/products available, the sites have becomes a maze to navigate, the links/navigation is not the same on all the sites, and links have not been updated, to provide quick easy access to all other Microsoft services...

    It would be nice, to have 1 webpage, that allowed a user to add the functionality they desired (like modules)
    Thie site would also have reguarlly updated links to every Microsoft service...

    The Windows Live Home could be the home for everything, and has the basics there, but is not configurable (like movable and removable modules, with editable settings), and does not show many services graphically (shared SkyDrive folders, are showen in live spaces as folders)...
    My Live is configurable, but does not have any modules for all these services

  • Hi HTPCnz,

    Thanks for the feedback, I've passed this on to the Windows Live team.  As you note, the Windows Live homepage has already started to improve in this area.
