Windows Live now supports Information Cards

Yahoo! Microsoft is finally eating its own dogfood when it comes to identity and access control for the masses!!!

You can now login to your Windows Live account using an Information Card. Notice the dropdown now has "Information Card" as an option in this screenshot of my login tonight:

This is awesome. It's still in beta... but is a serious step forward. Now to see it available in Messenger, Windows Mail and the like.

And more importantly... to the MVP leaders at Microsoft... PLEASE consider issuing managed cards for MVP awardees. You could expire it yearly and give us access to our MVP site, Microsoft Company Store, private newsgroups, Connect site and the MVP Summit stuff.

I hate passwords. It is so nice to see Microsoft do this; one less password I now have to worry about!

Couldn't agree more that this is a major step forward.
