Good news here! On November 7th, Microfost opened Windows Live ID sign-up to global users. In China, anyone can sign up firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com now. Before this date, users in China zh-cn market could only sign up Live ID firstname.lastname@example.org.
I have dreamed of @live.com for a long time. I tried many times in many ways, even used a US IP proxy. But I failed. That’s because I live in China and @live.com was not available in China before November 7th. I nearly asked a friend living in America to sign up a @live.com ID for me. Now I can get @live.com successfully. That’s great!
However, for @live.cn users, Skydrive is still not available in Chinese market.
