Spaces e la sorte annunciata

Ieri Microsoft ha annunciato una delle sue più grandi partnership, non in termini di soldi, ma in termini di utenti coinvolti. Tutti i blog Windows Live Spaces, migreranno a breve su Wordpress.com. In tutto si stimano 30 milioni. Non sono pochini. C’è chi nei commenti del post ufficiale fa notare che non tutto sarà però rose e fiori:

This sucks on so many levels:

1. My username url is not available on wordpress.com. I had created a blog on wordpress.com eons ago and made the mistake of deleting it. This means my url is not available - not to me, not to anyone else - it is gone forever.

2. Yet another username/password to remember - windows live signin doesn't work on wordpress.com

3. The "partnership" is restricted to blog migration and new signups being redirected - there is no windows live branding. I can create a blog on Blogger.com and "connect" it with Messenger too - why should I do it on Wordpress.com?

What would have been better?

1. You could have created Spaces into a Wordpress host like Wordpress.com, and allowed Windows Live signin.

2. You could have used this opportunity to show how well PHP and Wordpress run on Azure.

Opinabili, ma non del tutto errate.
