Completing the Windows Experience with Windows Live
Back in October during PDC2008, I highlighted the Windows + Windows Live relationship. Specifically, I called out how Windows + Windows Live will complete the Windows PC experience with Windows Live Essentials. Now that people can experience the relationship first-hand with Windows Live Essentials today – I thought I’d re-approach and discuss the topic in a little more detail.
Today, users are increasingly expecting that their PC (and their OS) allow them to do things on their desktop that have an online component such as e-mail. This is where Windows Live Essentials comes in. For example, when you’re at home on your laptop you can use Windows Live Mail, but when you’re on the go you can access that same mail from any computer with an Internet connection by going to Windows Live Hotmail. Windows Live Essentials combines what you do on the PC with what you do on the Web. That’s the benefit of software + services.
Many of the Windows Live programs within Windows Live Essentials serve as a “bridge” to the Windows Live services:
For Windows Live Essentials, we have introduced 3 programs as the successors to programs that were introduced in Windows Vista:
Windows Live Essentials doesn’t just consist of the above 3 programs, it also includes Windows Live Messenger, Windows Live Writer, Windows Live Toolbar, and Windows Live Family Safety adding significant value to PC users through its integrated and powerful features.
Windows Live Essentials today are free, key applications that make it easy to manage multiple e-mail accounts, edit and share photos, chat with IM for PC users and available today for you to download at download.live.com (available for Windows Vista, Windows XP, and the Windows 7 Beta).
In the coming weeks, I plan to dive deeper into many of these integrated and powerful features (many of which I use myself) that I that I hope you will enjoy.

I can see great potential in all these applications,and I think that when Seven is launched and all the people have it ,and they open up these apps after downloading them,of course,that they are going to become as popular as google and the likes are today,and they are going to be on everybodys lips like google etc, except they are going to be saying Windows LIVE .ps I hope I am not wrong ,because I forgot to say that if it does not go right,you know what Live spells backwards?
