How to register Windows Live ID?

Simply goto http://get.live.com/getlive/overview to signup your Windows Live ID for local domains (e.g. @live.com.my, changed according to your location). Although LiveSide provided a link for @live.com signup but it doesn’t work for me.

Migrate Hotmail or MSN mail to Windows Live

For those with existing hotmail.com or msn.com accounts, you can migrate your email inbox to Windows Live Mail using TrueSwitch. You can visit Windows Live Fresh Start for more information.

My two cents

I grabbed liewcf@live.com.my and lcf@live.com.my before telling you the news. 😛

I can’t get to register LIVE.COM or Windows Live ID for other country top-level domain. The signup page automatically detects your location. I think, we can use proxy server to mask our location. 😉
