Windows Live Suite
One of the reasons I started posting in my blog often, believe it or not, is the new Windows Live Suite, which was released a few days ago. The Live Suite includes programs such as Windows Live Messenger, Windows Live Writer, Windows Live Mail, Windows Live Gallery. Here’s a snip from the report eWeed did:
Microsoft has officially taken the beta moniker off the next generation of its Windows Live services, which it launched at events in New York and Los Angeles on Nov. 6. This new generation of Windows Live will be available in 36 languages and 59 countries across the world, and is the first integrated release of the services, Brian Hall, general manager of Microsoft’s Windows Live business group, told eWEEK.
Windows Live is designed to focus on three main things: putting the user at the center, providing an integrated experience across everything that Microsoft does on this front and bringing the best of the Web to Windows, he said.
In line with that strategy, this release brings enhancements to popular services such as Windows Live Hotmail, Messenger and Spaces, while introducing new services for sharing digital photos, planning and sharing events, publishing to the Web, and staying in touch with people, Hall said.
Windows Live Writer in particular is a very handy application, and it’s the one I use to update this blog – it works with all popular blogging sites, such as Blogger, Windows Live Spaces etc and offers an easy way to make posts. So I recommend it to those of you who don’t need something fancy
