Windows Live Essentials Jumps Out of the Beta Crib

Microsoft has taken Windows Live Essentials 2011 out of beta, and the online suite is now available for download. The suite works only on Windows 7 and Vista; it is not available on Windows XP. Dell will be the first global PC manufacturer to ship PCs with Windows Live Essentials 2011 and Windows 7 pre-installed, according to Chris Jones, vice president of Windows Live engineering. Many other PC manufacturers are planning to make the suite available, Jones said. The Windows Live Essentials 2011 suite was designed from the ground up for Windows 7.
