Microsoft must have decided to do some house cleaning today because they gave Microsoft Max the boot. I covered the last Beta release of Microsoft Max back in September when it started to show some signs of potential. Sure it wasn’t the most feature rich application but they had just added RSS capabilities and it had an interface that the less computer-savvy people would love.
It actually had a smart concept behind it with the photo manager. It would let you share photos with other people and draw on them wherever you wanted. I never had a chance to use this because it wasn’t Vista compatible, but it could have been a useful tool for collaboration purposes. If someone sends you a design you could quickly mark it up and send it back to them without much effort. Unfortunately Microsoft never really tried to publicize the software so few people even knew that it existed.
So I guess we can officially put Microsoft Max in the trash.
