Cloud Data Sharing Gets New Beta Release

Live Mesh is a Microsoft invention that lets users put all their files on the Internet and share them with multiple devices and users. Now there is a new beta labeled (get this) "0.9.3424.14"! Hey, I'm waiting for "0.9.3424.15"!

More Live Mesh details will be out in March at Microsoft's MIX09 show. I've looked into Live Mesh and found the approach a bit complex. But in terms of features, if all my files can be accessed from any of the 10 or so PCs in my house, I'd be a happy camper.

Do you use online data sharing and storage? If so, what is it and how does it work? Advice welcome at dbarney@redmondmag.com.
