"Windows Live Sync replacing FolderShare"

I have been a long-term user of FolderShare from before Microsoft bought it in 2005. Indeed, it is central to my personal backup strategy. FolderShare seemed to languish for quite some time but unlike OneCare, it isn't going to die but is going to be re-born as Windows Live Sync instead. Watching the progress of Live Mesh, I've been expecting something like this for a while and it makes sense to have a common platform for this kind of functionality from Microsoft.
