Microsoft Windows Live Supports OpenID

OpenID - the "free and easy way to use a single digital identity across the Internet" - is now supported by Microsoft Windows Live. Microsoft describes OpenID as the "emerging, de facto standard Web protocol for user authentication". According to Microsoft "We look forward to making it easier for our users to access the Web sites they use, by reducing their need to create additional identity accounts. That is the promise of OpenID. We are happy to support that goal by providing OpenID-based sign-in functionality to Windows Live ID account holders".
