    After weeks or months of teasing, Microsoft have finally made a beta version of the new Windows Live suite available for download and testing.

    I grabbed the english web installer version and without any kind of options it has installed the following seperately:
    • Windows Live Essentials Beta
    • Bing Bar
    • Microsoft Default Manager
    • Windows Live Sync ActiveX Control for Remote Connection
    • Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Compact Edition [Enu]
    • Windows Live Provider ofr Microsoft Outlook Social Connector
    I took the liberty of removing all existing Windows Live applications beforehand, so I don't know how well it deals with upgrades and rebooted after installation.

    So what are you thoughts?

    Was able to uninstall Writer, Family Safety and Mail afterwards as I just don't use those afterwards.

    Very much relieved that there is still a compact version which looks just like the old version just with some slick new bits.
