The more things change, the more they stay the same

Not quite a year ago, in discussing a migration from Windows Live Mesh Beta to Dropbox, I wrote:
"Live Mesh beta phased out at the end of March, and Windows Live Mesh launched April 1st, merging Live Mesh and Live Sync... and SkyDrive, um, sort of. Confused? Yeah, me too - what a cluttered, dog's breakfast."
In this context, I chuckled upon reading that Microsoft is introducing "Windows Account" with its upcoming Windows 8 platform, which will require the phasing out of the Live brand...except it'll still be used with XBox Live...or, rme.
