The answer is: No, this is the Skydrive “Start” menu! With the latest iteration of Skydrive, Skydrive has become even closer to a complete “Window Web OS”. What are some of the components of this “Web OS”?

  • Very simple “Start” menu
  • File Storage (Hardrive)
  • Office Apps
  • Photo viewer
  • Email (not only the client but the service as well!)
  • Presence & Instant Messaging (via Live Messenger web client)
  • This web OS easily sync’s with WindowsPhone, iPhone, now Android

What are some things currently lacking?

  • Configurable and complete Start menu
  • Ability to install additional apps
  • Printer management?

To access the “Start” menu, Open Outlook.com or Skydrive web interface, Goto email then:

Make no mistake, the components that are already in Skydrive are a large part of what “light OS” users do.
