I could see why it will become a problem to people who uses multiple Microsoft services. It's unfortunate how despite being only 100, XBL has the highest friend limit out of the three services! :(

I actually never looked at it that way...but it is also unfortunate because Xbox Live has been around for 7 years, without any increases in the friend limit. Between Gears of War games, Halo, the many multiplayer arcade titles, Call of Duty, etc...when you look at it on a per-game basis, 100 friends is VERY limiting.

You also can use windows live on your console .

GFWL also uses your Xbox Live friends list, if it uses your Live email address than odds are your friends list is also being used. I guess this has something to do with Microsoft not realizing how big and quickly Live as a service grew.

Yup, GFWL utilizes the same friend list, unfortunately :(
