Live Mesh Applications
From the whole â€œGoogle is an OSâ€ discussion going on across the blogosphere youâ€™d think Microsoft is in complete denial about the future of cloud computing and has absolutely no initiatives in place.
Well soon weâ€™ll get a glimpse of the possibilities of Windows Live Mesh synchronisation platform, and itâ€™s a hell of a lot more then simple data synchronisation across multiple devices.
Essentially Live Mesh is a platform from which applications can run from the desktop, from the web and from various different devices. Long Zheng posted some screenshots of a test application demonstrating this in action.
The potential for this is simply amazing and Iâ€™m really exited for when the Mesh platform is released fully and applications become available. Imagine this situationâ€¦ you have a 15 gigabyte library of songs which you can now synchronise into the cloud and your Live Mesh Online desktop. Any changes you make to the music files can be synchronised between platforms. Imagine having a media application running from the Mesh platform. sing this you could be anywhere, decide you want to access your music library or songs and simply go onto your online desktop and play them as if you where on your computer at home.
If you ask me this kind of situation is a whole lot more appealing then this entirely cloud-based OS we keep hearing so much about.
Iâ€™m excited. Whatâ€™s your opinion?Advertisement
