Linked Live IDs disabled

Remember our previous post about Windows live sign-in now set for use with one account? How we were wondering why Linked-IDs was not mentioned in the team’s post when telling how to best set up things in the new design? Well, Winston noticed that Linked IDs have been disabled. Say what? Yea apparently since about July 13th. The option has even been removed from the Options section in the user account page.

Why? For how long? We do not know as there was no post on Inside Windows Live blog about this. Only Windows Live Solution personnel seem to be aware of this. I for one hope the feature was disabled because of improvements not for removal!

We’ll let you know as soon as we hear more! Believe me we are as curious as you when it comes to the reasoning behind this.

Do you use linked-IDs? Let us know in the comments below.
