WordPress.com and Windows Live Partner

Windows Live (formerly MSN) Spaces is closing and migrating their 30m+ users to WordPress.com.

WordPress.com and Windows Live are partnering to create a simple migration service for Spaces bloggers to easily bring all their posts, comments, and photos to WordPress.com.

“Over a six month period, beginning today, Windows Live Spaces users will have the option to move their blogs to WordPress.com. To make this possible, we’ve created a brand new importer for Windows Live Spaces to WordPress.com. New Windows Live users will also be offered a WordPress.com blog when they choose to create a new blog.

All current links to your Windows Live Spaces blog will automatically redirect to your new WordPress.com blog after you set it up. In addition, this redirect we’ve set up will maintain your current traffic levels from search engines, as it automatically notifies search engines that your content has a new home on WordPress.com” Full story at WordPress.com Blog
