Windows Live Essentials 2011
Full user review
"Forget this 2011 version-stick with WLE 2009 version."
Not very much. The only plus is that Windows Live Movie Maker now supports direct record from webcam. But then you can do that with Windows XP Movie Maker 2.1 which works on Windows 7,Vista and Windows 8.
Windows Live Messenger not user friendly,crashes slow. Horrible Ribbon in Windows Live Photo Gallery and Live Mail.
Foret it and stick with Windows Live Essentials 2009 instead.Microsoft are now forcing Windows 7 users to upgrade to this Windows Live Essentials 2011 version.By issuing a mandatory upgrade so now if you try to log into Messenger 209 it won't let you.If it is not set in any compatibility mode that is. But just set your Windows Live Messenger 2009 in compatibility mode for Windows XP and you WON'T get the update.Don't get this Windows Live Essentials 2011 version.This is the wrong version,awful.
Then you can stay with WLE 2009. So forget this WLE 2011 version and stick with WLE 2009 instead. Avoid this version-2011. Andrea Borman.
