Surely the article would be taken off MS if it was giving false information?
Get your facts straight. That was my first post in this thread and I quoted his posted info and Microsoft's posted info to show the omissions of what was copy/pasted.

I could care less what everyone believes since facts never seem to matter.

I never said it was false either, just incorrectly posted.

So, that's what my post was about.

Wasn't actually aiming that comment at you Derek, apologies if it came across that way.
Actually wishing I hadn't posted a link to that article in the first place now. My mistake.

It is recommended that if you participate in a discussion, you do not just pick some posts to read and jump over some other posts. You should read all the posts.

Like now. The seventh last post before yours (post #123 here), Derekimo explained this with an example. The only thing MS has ever said about Windows Essentials and Windows 10 is "If you have Windows Live Essentials installed on your system, the OneDrive application is removed and replaced with the inbox version of OneDrive."

In the hands of this known Copy & Paste expert this has been changed to explain that the whole Windows Essentials will be killed. That is not the case, Microsoft has never said anything like it. It's just that someone with limited knowledge takes some facts and some rumors and makes his own misguided, invalid statements.

So, the question now is what programs do you lose that is part the windows Essentials package?

Maybe you should post a reply on the site then and tell him which parts you think he's copied and pasted.
It might help to clear some of it up if he's incorrect. Or do you just want to call him a copy and paste artist on here and leave it at that?
If you think the article is false then why not tell him about it? Not trying to sound argumentative, but if you don't agree with the article then what's the harm in asking?

I've read every single post in this thread from day one and also contributed links and help, so not sure what your point is about only picking out certain parts??*

According to the MS site, if you have OneDrive then it'll be replaced with the built in OneDrive inbox. But, as has been said before that article states Windows live essentials will be removed so it's not clear. But I can't see any reason why WLE wouldn't work on W10?

Also, if you guys want me to post any questions on there with regards to clearing anything up, I'd be happy to do it.

Mostly because all are separate built in apps now in 10tp
But the "Live" is the older batch which a lot of people prefer the older version compared to the w.e. 2012 versions,
I believe they are the x-p versions of wle 2009 and some from wle 2011

Either way the wiki is for the most part accurate but yes indeed a lot of copy and pasting was used
M$ is supposed to monitor wiki article for accuracy on some thing that long there's going to be mistakes I'm sure Shawn knows that pretty well

Report inaccurate statements to the author is all I can say.
Cheers.

Still using WLM 2012 myself here and I'd prefer to keep using it but if that statement is true then I'm sure I could find an alternative.
I've just looked at some of the latest questions on there and seems someone has asked him about that.
