The only one in the list I'd miss would be the Live Essential package, but only the Windows Live Mail part, that's my email client plus my RSS Feeds home. I have Ashampoo software for all my DVD needs and I can't remember how many years ago it was I had a machine with a floppy drive.

Where's this information about Live Mail no longer working in Windows 10 coming from? Have I missed an announcement? Of course everyone knows that the Live Messenger is discontinued, MS killed it over two years ago in April 2013, last version published a year before that. But Live Mail? Is this "Thrash News"?

At least in Build 10130, the latest at the moment, the Windows Live Mail works well.

I was just going by the fact that they are apparently getting rid of the Windows Live Essentials suite of programs and WLM is part of that. I've not really looked into the Mail program in Windows 10 as I installed WLM and use that.

I'm not really taking any notice of all the talk about what and what isn't included it's a new OS and I'm looking forward to using it, but that's me easily pleased.

At least at the moment it seems to be more like the typical misinformation purposely spread by the "I hate change" Windows thrashers.

I saw that window 10 is going to remove live essentials. That information came from an article.

I am still not seeing anything about Windows Live Mail being discontinued and stopping working. It is understandable if they will discontinue the Live Essentials package as it has been because from its original modules only a few are still working, but I promise to eat a 200 gram (7 ounces) can of cat food and drink half a bottle of that awful brown sugary beverage Americans call bourbon (about the worst possible drink and taste for a whisky lover) with it in front of the webcam in a future Ten Forums Live Chat if Windows Live Mail does not work in final version of Windows 10.

I don't know what the info in that article really means, and if it is right or wrong ...
I think that is one example of where this info is coming from that people interpret as "WLM being discontinued".

I ran the W10 compatibility checker on one of my systems.
No problems with hardware compatibility.
It showed 1 program was not compatible with W10.
I have WLM on that system and it did not get flagged as incompatible.
