Have you tried Google for the answer to "what is Windows Live?" I found it on www.live.com (wonder what that domain name cost!!)

Ive allready got live mail to replace my hotmail and its allright better than hotmail anyway, and messenger live is just the same to me now windows look slightly better and there is some better features.
Gmail is coming out of beta slowly i beleive Australie and New zealand are allready just out of Beta and people there can register without invitations, Gmail has been out of beta for a while they just kept the beta name because they want to slowly build it up to complete open sign ups rather than getting absolutley bombed with applications all at once with a global release. The only change to gmail once out of beta is there wont be invitations anymore.

It's also Microsoft's version of the Web 2.0, where information and programs are stored on a server, rather than locally. Windows Live services will be direct competitors for many of Google services. Who are they targeting besides Google? Just companies like MySpace, eBay, Craig's List, AOL, Symantec, YouTube, and even forums like this (Live Search Answers). There may even be an advertising supported version of Windows (and will likely be one for Office). Much like Google's often released beta's, I'm sure some Windows Live services will become popular, and others will simply fade away.
Xbox 360 Live will someday enable you to check your gamertag on your cell phone, and even play some multi-player games. It will also enable muliti-player games online between PC and Xbox players. It currently allows mulit-player between 360's, downloading of games, and an online community. All for a monthy fee.
If you haven't heard much about Live yet, you will. The future of Microsoft may depend on it.

in other words is everyone saying here that "live" is just the program on the server as opposed to the same program in the user's comp, if so:
1) I wonder how MS will make money if the need to have the application on ones computer disapears, a clear example being live "Office apps".
2)I am dying to know if this "live" idea will also cut down the malware problem or add to it?(Just your oppinion needed, no details)
3)Also, would it decrease the need to have a great power large capasity comp, except for gaming?
