Those of you on Windows Vista can’t even install the software. I know. I tried.
For those that have the right OS the package includes:
- Windows Sky Drive for storage of your music, photos, video and the sharing of such with friends and family.
- Windows Live Writer for creating blog posts that incorporate photos and videos a lot easier than other programs. I use the 2011 version. Spiffy program.
- Windows Movie Maker, the updated version that now exports out to .mp4, has an anti-shake correction feature and will now make it easier for folks to use music from a variety of paid and free resources from inside of the software.
- Other stuff of interest is Windows Photo Gallery, Windows Live Mail, Windows Live Family Safety*, Windows Live Messenger and Outlook Connector Pack
Microsoft is being a bit sluggish on the details and updating the Windows Essentials web site. At the time of writing this post the information still refers to the prior versions of the software.
Hopefully, that will change soon.
