Much to my astonishment, Microsoft lets you map their Skydrive to a drive letter in Windows using good old fashioned SMB. 25Gb of online cloud space suddenly is built into Windows, including Windows XP.

Yet AGAIN, here's something cool and useful from Microsoft that no one has advertised, no one knows about and more importantly, would have saved me time in the past. What the hell must be wrong within Microsoft internally I don't know, setting up a full Samba service for every Windows user can't have been easy nor cheap yet they don't bother telling anyone about it :(
