I use the same programs and the Beta has changed to a Ribbon interface and it takes some playing to find everything. In Mail, no more "SYNC" button, its back to "Send/Receive"

Okay it looks like Live Sync only offers two gigs of storage on Skydrive. Skydrive offers 25gigs but automatic Syncing is only two gigs. Still not bad.

Once again MS confirms that they are going with the ribbon. Kinda glad they ditched the "SYNC" thing though and went back to the age-old "Send/Receive".

So far so good...love the new look, and seems to run much faster and smooth. Was not to fussed on the new look messenger but just found a compact view button that makes it look more like the old version. Mail and photo gallery are excellent and seem to have speeded up a lot

I have to say I really like the new looks and functionality of Windows Live Mail. It looks and acts like a real email client.
