The latest version of Live Essentials 2011 is out and it’s a single gateway to social networking. They have integrated MSN messenger with Facebook, LinkedIn and MySpace.
the new essentials have Micorsoft’s signature ribbon styled UI and is very quick,
Messenger : Users can chat with their facebook friends and view their updates all with single login
Photo Gallery – Used to organize, upload (To the social media) and search for photos on your pc
Writer – It’s the best tool to write blogs, I use it and recommend people to use it
Mesh: Access the stuff on your computers from almost anywhere
Honestly microsoft has done well with essentials, only negativity is this version doesn’t run on XP or lower version.
