SkyDrive has been around forever. Of course, not everyone knew about SkyDrive, so many people think Google’s g-drive or Apple’s i-cloud or Dropbox invented online storage. Nope.
The heritage of SkyDrive is not important now. It is what it is. And this would not be the first MS marketing blunder. What matters now is how SkyDrive stacks against it’s immediate competitors. The story is good.
