Windows Live Space Merging With WordPress
It’s Official now, Microsoft’s Windows Live Spaces (or MSN Spaces) are partnering up with the guys at WordPress.com to upgrade and migrate more than 30 million bloggers. That basically means now WordPress.com is going to be the default platform for every Windows Live Space user.
Its not a bad thing, Seriously. If you’re a Windows Live Space user you should be very glad that Microsoft made this great move. Now you will enjoy the unlimited benefits of blogging using the most popular blogging platform online; Which not only makes you feel good when you blog but also helps you improve your blogging day-to-day.
This migration is also a good deal for WordPress, as this will be doubling it’s user base.
Over the course of the upcoming 6 months users will have the option of upgrading their blogs to the WordPress Platform, but there is no need to worry. For those who are wondering if this move will affect your current statistics, I should let you know that WordPress & The Windows Live Team have been working hard to make sure that users don’t loose anything from this move and also provide a smooth upgrade.
I would love to hear your thoughts about this amazing merger, and if you think Microsoft made the right decision or not?
