re: Microsoft SkyDrive Vs. Dropbox, Google: Hands-On
I'm a hard core Dropbox and Google Docs user and have been for a long while. As of few months ago, I started exploring SkyDrive and it's capabilities. Shortly after, I started falling in love with it for several reasons. Firstly, Microsoft, for free, gave me a total of 27 GB for for life and it's something I couldn't ignore. Secondly, unlike Dropbox and Google Docs, I'm able to organize all of my folders and files the way my hart desires. Their structure really attempts to prevent users from having a mess of files. Thirdly, the recent overhaul of Outlook. com and SkyDrive makes it a lot more inciting to completely convert. The new design is simple and very user friendly, it ensures productivity, and best of all their ads are not as annoying as other providers. They only show up when you hover over them. I can certainly live with that (or I may just block them all together via an extension)!
I have in recent years been avoiding any Microsoft cloud related products since they rapidly have fell behind the curve and were no longer innovating. But, Microsoft is surprisingly managing to impress me.
