Windows Live Mesh ending Feb. 13

Microsoft has set Feb. 13, 2013 as the end-of-life date for Windows Live Mesh and is urging Live Mesh users to move over to SkyDrive before then.

Live Mesh was launched in 2008 and, at one point, was used by “a few million people,” Microsoft said in an official blog post. With Microsoft’s more recent emphasis on SkyDrive, its personal cloud offering, the number of active Windows Live Mesh users has gone down to 25,000, compared to the 200 miliion people who have now used SkyDrive, according to MIcrosoft.

Instructions for moving from Live Mesh to SkyDrive, Microsoft’s personal cloud storage offering, are in the blog post. (The comments to the blog post are also interesting, highlighting some of the Live Mesh features that aren’t in SkyDrive — at least not yet.)
