    Mac Client availability

    I haven't seen mentioned anything about the Macintosh client for this 'new'
    service.
    1. Where on the Microsoft web site can I find more information about the
    Macintosh version?
    2. Will there be a Macintosh Client?
    3. Will the services be the same?
    4. If I do nothing will my FolderShare client still work?
    5. If FolderShare Macintosh stops then what will I see when it fails?
    6. Will it fail 'gracefully or will it trash my files/folder on the clients?
    7. Will this new 'service' cost anything?

    From the official MS post:
    "In December, we will release a new product called Windows Live Sync. You can
    think of it as FolderShare 2.0. It's going to look familiar and offer the
    same great features, plus...<em>- New client versions for both Windows and
    Mac.</em>

    It will continue to be free. Also from the above:
    "You should also note that the Professional option is being retired with the
    FolderShare name. Sync has a single offer, which provides free
    synchronization for up to 20 libraries and 20,000 files. We'll be working to
    raise those numbers as our service grows."
