U Penn Goes Live

wharton.jpgMicrosoft found a way to boost its user base of Live by 13,000 users, with potential to expand to 20,000 over time. The University of Pennsylvania’s SAS and Wharton students will get a customized version of the operating system dubbed Penn Live. Live on campus will host e-mail accounts including mobile and offline access. Students will get two gigabytes of storage space for all the music they’re buying for their Zune players or possibly some really long research reports, calendaring, contact management, Windows Live Messenger, file sharing, Windows Live Spaces, and P2P networking to synchronize files between multiple devices and other students. Of course just because Microsoft and the university created customized features, it’s up to the students how they’ll live with Live.
