Live Mesh is now openly available to anyone in the U.S.
The Live Mesh team is pleased to announce that anyone in the U.S. can now use Live Mesh just by signing in to www.mesh.com with a valid Windows Live ID. No sign up needed to participate!
If you’re outside the U.S., you apparently have to change your region and language settings to EN-US, which might be a dealbreaker for some.
Anyway, the current release of Live Mesh is an excellent way to sync files across machines and make them available “in the cloud.” Give it a try.
Update: The Live Mesh team has more details, including the news that there’s a cap on the number of new registrants:
This week we did two things:
- Doubled the maximum number of users we’ll allow to access the Live Mesh Technology Preview.
- Simplified the Tech Preview sign-up process. We’ve removed the requirement to sign up via Microsoft Connect, so that instead you can sign up directly from www.mesh.com.
So if you’re thinking of signing up, don’t wait too long…
