    Glad Live Mesh won as it had to. it would have been a rip off otherwise compared to what it was against to.

    I’m waiting for the Live Mesh team to wake up and deliver all the features that they promised to.

    Happy New Year! Now get sober!

    Now Windows 7 beta is out, could we please get the promised update? You said, you had finished it in December, so what is holding it up?

  6. Jason says:

    That is great.  Now you can work on the upate to fix the Aero Glass issue in Windows 7 when running mesh 😉

    A new Mesh user here, just dipping my toes in after (re)investigating Mesh after hearing about the Crunchie award. I must say I’m impressed!

    However, the Black-theming is really bugging me. All it reall does is change the theme color, not interfering with Aero in a substantive manner, but it’s by far the most prominent and annoying glitch on the Windows 7 Beta (another neat product I’ve been checking out recently).

    Again, congrats, and I look forward to even greater progress in the future! 😉

    Congratulations. While the basic idea of mesh (i.e sync the files between devices) seems easy, Microsoft mesh has done it in the most beautiful, transparent and reliable way. Industrializing an idea in this beautiful manner deserves such prizes and appreciation.

    As a computer scientist, I admire this project.

    Congratulations to the entire team !!! I am just facinated by this technology since the beginning and am eagerly waiting for the tokens to start using it.
