One unfortunate limitation of SkyDrive compared to the competition is the lack of built-in support for accessing it as a Windows share. As seen above, DropBox does support this, as do others.

There are third-party hacks that set up the SkyDrive as a WebDAV share, but these do not inspire confidence and are not supported by Microsoft. The lack of share support is surprising coming from Microsoft.
