Windows 7: If uTorrent can do it, why cant Windows Live

If uTorrent can do it, why cant Windows Live

So all the Windows live apps (Messenger, Mail) don't minimize correctly to system tray in Windows 7 Yet an app like uTorrent Minimizes to tray perfectly and does not remain sitting on the Taskbar

All the Windows 7 Betas .. no one on the windows live team addressed the issue ?? and i don't want to run these apps in win vista mode, they should work right out the box So the question is.. Am I overlooking this, or should/will windows live address this issue soon ???

Its just that microsoft doesn't see this as an issue. It sees this as a good way to utilize the jumplist (ex: windows live messenger's task list)
Im sorry that your problem couldn't be resolved. I agree that it is better for some to run from the notification area. =(
Maybe, you can post this up on microsoft's forums. They might pay attention to it. You can also go to connect.microsoft.com and they should have a program for windows live essentials, from which you can send your feedback and suggestions.
I also agree that utorrent is an awesome program ^^.
