Microsoft stops Live Spaces. Moves to WordPress.

Microsoft said today that it is scrapping its aging Windows Live Spaces blogging technology and will instead make WordPress the default blogging option for Windows Live.

WordPress Announcement

It might be a good move - a unified blogging platform, and from what I've experienced - WordPress is a really powerful one. I wonder how smooth will be the transition for existing users, but time will show.

Is This A Good Question/Topic? 1

It was bound to happen, Windows Live Spaces never made an impact in the market.

Is it bad that I have never heard of live spaces? Must have been marketed that well.
