    I wonder how much WP paid for that privilege...

    I think MS might be glad to be rid of it, but still keep a finger in the pie.

    An interesting move hopefully this will further support and performance for WordPress on a Windows platform.

    Windows Live Spaces was not only a blogging platform. It had a dashboard where you could add calendars, and other widgets that visitors could see. I personally never had a use for it (I'm not alone it seems).
    Windows Live Spaces was also not maintained. The design didn't match the rest of the Live family of online services.

    Microsoft needs to focus on the stuff they do well instead of trying everything all the time. Sure they are looking for the next big success but with all that has happened lately it just gets too fragmented.
