Comment: Re:Warning - concealed terms of service (Score 3, Informative) 230

The Microsoft announcement says "Use of the software is governed by the Windows Live ID Sign-in Assistance 6.5 Beta License Agreement accessible as a file in this download." So you can't read the terms of service without downloading (and installling?) the software.

If you scroll down further, you'll see "Windows Live ID Sign-in Assistant 6.5 beta License Terms.rtf" which can be downloaded and viewed separately without having to install the program.

Support was supposed to end 2 years after Vista was released, but under the new life cycle, they will enter extended support in April 2009, so critical security updates will be available for an additional five years."
