Groove Bought Over By Microsoft

The important development of the day is Microsoft's acquisition of Groove.
In the recent past, we have noted that with the latest version of Groove which Ray Ozzie said was a product that would straddle both IBM and Microsoft world - was anyway getting Windows-centric. Groove fills in a niche that Microsoft didn't have the right technology for. Groove was also a hit with people needing to collaboratively work without an Exchange server.

While Microsoft had some products around P2P & collaboration technologies ,Groove is miles ahead and this way it is a good acquisition for Microsoft. Groove shall become totally centered/supportive of Microsoft technologies moving forward.This integration may be quite easy as Grooveanyway uses may windows native components. A good buy for Microsoft - As far as Groove - had it stayed as a separate entity - could have made headway in the collbaration market.
