So at first glance it looks like MSN Spaces, Microsoft’s new also ran approach to blogging, pretty much sucks. Scoble didn’t seem to have good things to say about it. Gartenberg says it’s “clearly beta.” Scoble has a full round up over here.
My own personal opinion is that it’s pretty stupid to try and tell people what they can and can’t say on a blog. I’m not sure why, when I already get pretty much everything that I need from blogger and can have my own domain without ads merely by buying my own inexpensive hosting, I would want anything else.
Nonetheless, the same old saps that click on IE and don’t know about Firefox when they get their shiny new computer — the same people who still have their IE homepage stuck on MSN — will probably love this thing.
