The 2nd beta of Windows Live Essentials 2011 is available for download. WLE is one of the greatest software packages for Windows by Microsoft. If you loved the WLE 2010 edition, why not give the beta a try and see what’s coming up? If you have never heard of WLE, get more details after the break.
It’s sad, but a lot of people don’t know that Microsoft provides a lot of free software for Windows that can be downloaded in one go. You seriously need to give it a try if you haven’t heard it about it yet.
Modern software package with beautiful Ribbon UI for free! What else do you want?
The Windows Live Essentials is a package of useful software. Here’s a list of included software:
- Windows Photo Gallery
- Windows Live Mail
- Windows Live Movie Maker
- Windows Live Messenger
- Windows Live Writer
- Windows Bing Bar
- Windows Messenger Companion
- Windows Family Safety
- Windows Sync
- Microsoft Office Outlook Connector
- Microsoft Silverlight
As you can see, you’re getting a free mail software for Windows 7, a free movie editing software, a messenger, a writing program and much more. I happen to like Microsoft Silverlight a lot, it’s so much better than Adobe’s Flash (I’m tired of slow loading websites, thanks to Flash, honestly!).
Best of all, you don’t have to install them separately, you’re getting an all-in-one-solution for many things like blogging, video editing, communicating.
I’m especially fond of the Windows Live Messenger. Here’s a review of the Windows Live Messenger 2010 that supports HD chat, personal themes and provides a lot of useful social web 2.0 features!
