Time For Mac Zealots To Eat Some Crow?

Live Mesh on the Mac Not that long ago Microsoft announced the limited invite only access to their Live Mesh [nw] – cloud computing platform – was available for those lucky enough to get an invite to play with. Of course one of the first things that was stated that there was no Mac support for accessing or using the platform. It didn’t matter that the Mesh team said that Mac support was coming more than a few people saying this was more hot air from Microsoft.

Well it turns out that indeed there is support coming. According to a report on LiveSide [nw] today there is a pre beta version of a Mesh client that is floating around. While the team at LiveSide didn’t have the Mac equipment to test on they turned to their friends over at jkontherun to give the new client a run through [nw] and you can read their whole post on what they found on their blog.

I remember that when Live Mesh was first announced sans Mac support how the Mesh team stressed that Mac support was a very important part of their strategy and there would be a Mac client in short order for it – which by this new would seem to be the case.

So all you boo-hooing zealots how there – how would you like your slice of crow pie served up?
