I got an email from Microsoft today announcing that my Office Live Workspaces account is being upgraded for free to build it around Windows Live SkyDrive and Office Web Apps.
Your Microsoft Office Live Workspace beta account is about to become even better. You already know itâ€™s a great way to store and share documents, and soon it will come together with Windows Live SkyDrive to become a great way to view, create, and edit documents from virtually anywhere.
In the coming months, youâ€™ll receive notification when your Office Live Workspace account will be upgraded, along with further details. Until then, thereâ€™s no need for you to do anything.
With your SkyDrive account, youâ€™ll get 25 GB of online storage for sharing both documents and photos. Your SkyDrive account is designed to work smoothly with other Windows Live services like Hotmail and Messenger. And youâ€™ll be able to view and edit documents from virtually anywhere* using new Microsoft Office Web Apps.

This is really exciting for people who use Office Live Workspaces and it means you no longer need to be on a PC with Office installed such as an Internet Cafe, and it also means the storage grows and becomes consolidated with documents on SkyDrive â€“ Excellent.
Iâ€™m just hopeful that Live Mesh with integrate with SkyDrive meaning I can have 25GB of Live Mesh / SkyDrive / Office Live Workspace storage instead of three separate spaces.
