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."
