Live Mesh provides synchronization of data between devices via the cloud using FeedSync for change notification. Files can be accessed on any device with the Live Mesh client installed, or from the Live Desktop if they weren't synchronized P2P only. Permissions for folders within the mesh can be managed by Live ID, allowing one to give read-only, read-write, or full control over any folder within their mesh for which they are an owner or creator.

Currently there is a 5 GB limit on the total size of data synchronized through the Live Mesh service.

Live Desktop

The Live Desktop is a web application that simulates a Windows Vista like desktop environment. It allows users to upload, organize and search files, view media, and view a running log of changes to the file system.

Edit

Live Mesh Client

The Live Mesh client can be installed on Windows XP (32-bit) and Windows Vista (32-bit and 64-bit editions). A Tech Preview edition of the Macintosh client can be installed on Mac OS X (10.5.1 or higher). A mobile edition of the client that can be installed on Windows Mobile 6.x is still in the works.

Live Mesh Remote Desktop

Live Mesh Remote Desktop enables users to create a Remote Desktop connection to devices within their mesh from within the browser window or the desktop client without having to know the device's IP address or DNS name. It currently requires an ActiveX control to be installed in order to use this functionality within the browser.

It does not appear to use the same RDP technology behind Terminal Services. Images of one's desktop are sent across the wire to the remote machine in blocks, and the mouse position/actions are refreshed remotely numerous times per second. Unlike traditional Remote Desktop, Live Mesh Remote Desktop supports multiple monitors, and can stretch/skew the image of the remote machine if the remote resolution is greater than the local resolution.
