The Windows Live Space Team has updated the header area of Windows Live Space web pages based on feedback from users of the service.

The change introduces the Windows Live service links, such as Home, Profile, People Mail, Photos, More at the extreme top. What happens now is, it clashes with the second layer of links that are a part of the users space, ‘User profile, blog name, Photos, Blog, List and More.
This area of the Windows Live Space needs some serious work, I think the users personal Windows Live Links should become a blog part allowing the author to place it anywhere they desire on the page. Customize, Options, Help, could be more subtle too and consolidated into the Users account part on the header similar to Windows Live Hotmail.
I also don’t like Search Fields location and it has a lot of limitations, you can’t search within the users Windows Live Space to make it easier to find blog post, although I could use the new Search Federation capabilities in Windows 7 to resolve that. I just think the Windows Live look and feel could be more cohesive.
