Microsoft: It’s Alive!!!!

It seems Microsoft was a day late with their Halloween horror story called Microsoft Live! and Microsoft Office Live! Whether these are truly “a Microsoft bet” (boy, is that line getting tired) or just a tired rebranding of next-gen Hotmail, MSN and bCentral services to respond to all the good press Google, Yahoo! and other rich AJAX apps are getting remains to be seen.

Dave Winer attended and called it “the worst demo ever.” Mini-Microsoft links to dozens of links. Mary Jo Foley has thorough coverage. Dan Farber questions what’s live – that it’s on the web? Niall Kennedy has some intriguing photographs.

Maybe Microsoft Live 3.0 will be better…
