The best thing about Microsoft these days is they seem to understand there is a need for change. Not just change for change sake but for a specific purpose and response to consumer demand. Enter today’s Building Windows 8 blog post where Mike Torres and Omar Shahine display and go over SkyDrive integration in Windows 8.
Three key things covered are:
SkyDrive Metro style app on Windows 8
SkyDrive files integrated into Windows Explorer on the desktop, and
The ability to fetch remote files through SkyDrive.com
The key things I take away from this is that we are in for a totally mobile and social future with Microsoft firmly entrenched in the middle of it. These are all welcomed changes and if Skype can be integrated into it also this would be a powerful combination that gives the user more control, if they want it, than other offerings.
