While I didn't and wont download their toys due to the license agreement, I
did check out their powerpoint. Looks like someone has been listening, as
for how they did it, ugg... Complexity anyone? I do see why BillG likes it
tho - no way it's running on a PDA without big iron somewhere.

ICQ + skins + XML + Microsoft specifics + big $$$ fees for developers/users.

Or am I missing something?

And what good is P2P with this "You may not use our services to infringe
copyrights." in the use policy? What else would I "share" with P2P. Wasn't
that 99% of the motivation for P2P in the first place, since they make
near-zero sense for anything else.

A press storm of that magnitude is a very impressive thing to watch tho.
They should really peer-to-peer their web site ;)
