Care to explain exactly how WLE 2012 is worse than 2011? (And how 2011 is worse than 2009, apart from the ribbon, which you can hide
There are barely any differences between WLE 2011 and 2012. No features have been removed, a few have been added here and there, and some of the applications now have more of a Metro UI.
Personally, I installed it without hesitation as soon as I found out about it, and I haven't had any problems with it.
Andrea, the normal behavior when using certain software which receives updates is to install them. Not to avoid them and delete any reminiscence of the new software and use 16-bit applications.
Well we have got WLE 2009 version,which is the latest version on our Windows XP. So I don't see why we can't have it on Windows Vista and Windows 7. And WLE 2009 and Messenger 2009 is working on my Windows 8. Andrea Borman.
That's like asking why we can't have IE6 in Windows 7. WLE 2009 should not be used on Vista/7/8, because there's a better alternative.
