> The post describes the converged identity service being developed by
> Microsoft that will enable people to log in either with an individual
> account (Microsoft Account) or an organizational account (Azure Active
> Directory).  This is a big deal, because developers will soon have a single
> identity service that their applications can use for both kinds of accounts.
>
>
>
> The other big deal is that the changes announced are a concrete
> demonstration of Microsoft’s ongoing commitment to interoperability and
> support for open identity standards – in this case, OpenID Connect
> <http://openid.net/connect/>.  As the post says:
>
> The primary motivation for introducing these changes is to be compliant
> with the OpenID Connect standard specification.  By being OpenID Connect
> compliant, we hope to minimize differences between integrating with
> Microsoft identity services and with other identity services in the
> industry.  We want to make it easy for developers to use their favorite
> open source authentication libraries without having to alter the libraries
> to accommodate Microsoft differences.
>
>
>
> If you’re a developer, please do heed the request in the post to give the
> service a try now as it approaches General Availability (GA).  Enjoy!
