Fix for Windows Live ID/country issue coming?
I am not sure if is has been mentioned by anyone yet, but since there has been a couple of threads about the very annoying MS policy making it impossible to change the country of a Windows Live ID, I thought I should share the following finds:
1. In this Microsoft support thread, it is suggested by a Program Manager for the Live ID program that "senior management" is aware of the issue and some way of addressing it is forthcoming.
2. This might be a violation of EU law and there is a website set up for this issue specifically here: http://www.itisourdata.com.
While a fix sounds a bit too good to be true, given how tightly integrated WLID will be with Windows 8, I am not surprised that Microsoft is looking into it.
