Here I opt out of the Blog writer and Movie Maker to start with always going with the custom not full install option. You may want to take that route or simply removed the Movie Maker if you run into problems having it on.
Well in my experience, I did install the older version on Windows Live Movie Maker and Windows Live Photo Gallery a long time ago. It was a custom install, but if I remember correctly, all those apps are checked for installation by default. Even if I installed only those two, they came with smaller components like Windows Live Sign in Assistant and some other components that gets installed even if you choose to install just one of the WLE applications.

I found out that WL Photo Gallery is slow is populating image thumbnails than its Vista counterpart. The Windows Live Movie Maker at that time also didn't have a bloody timeline which is a big big big design flaw that their developers did. And now, judging by the screenshot, its looking like the 2011 WL Movie Maker still does not have a timeline.

Uninstalling WLE suite also leaves a lot of orphaned files and registry entries. That makes me wanna stay away from it at this point.

Just downloaded it on my desktop and laptop and love it. I think the new Mesh app is one of the greatest things ever. Now I can keep all my files for school synced between both of my pc's. The remote feature is really great too for people who can't use Remote desktop connection. Before I was having to use a combination of Teamviewer and Dropbox to do this and didn't really like either one that much. Now Mesh does it all and works 1000000x better.

The new WL mail is nice too.

Someone was just asking me about all that. A few set up tips on how to get that going here would help!

Personally I don't use FB but had someone explain the automatic addition process and will list who is on at the moment at FB.

Wow, I am loving this new Live. The facebook integration is great!

I wish I could get the WLM off the taskbar, and into the notification area so it didn't take up space...

Edit, found it in the link above!! Thanks
