Windows Live Essentials 'beta' out now!

[...] and also notice all those things in the screen caps took place on other social networks, Windows Live is being just a social aggregator since Microsoft missed out of the social networking hype.

Which makes sense. It would be silly of Microsoft to try and compete with Facebook and Twitter; instead, it makes much more sense to try and be as unique as possible and aggregate all of one's social networks into one product :) Bearing in mind Windows Live is supposed to be an extension to Windows, this makes much more sense because it allows a Windows user to keep track of all their social activity.

Isn't that is for an older build? Does anyone have test it on the latest leak?

I tried the older patch on it and I can confirm it doesn't work, it pretty much corrupts it so you can't launch Windows Live Messenger.

That's bad, let's hope the new patch will be out as soon as possible.

Looks like they copied Skype on the large window and small window options.. what is it with MS and betas? I understand restricting public access.. But why make it so hard to uninstall and go back? I found Skype 5 beta and it gives me no probs.. plus I tried WLM 14.0.8117.726 and webcam quality was horrendous to say the least.. seemed the webcam zoomed on me and the contact I was talking to and to top it all of, there was no "Show Webcam" option blink.gif I could only make "Video Calls".. wtf MS!!?! what abt ppl who just wanna chat with webcams on? Anyways back to 14.0.8089.726 for me.. I dont know if I'll use Wave 4 WLM if it doesn't have the "Show Webcam" option..

Yep :) Which makes sense. They now realise they have a look which works across all Windows Live web services and Windows Live Messenger and are focussing on adding useful features which should have been implemented years ago (tabbed chats is an example).

"Show Webcam" is a very useful feature too you know :p I hope they don't bin it..

At least it uses the same skin format, so it'll be able to have stuff changed and removed from it.

There are certain leaked builds and workouts that let you use Wave 4 Beta, but they are not official, they will not work like the official beta. So I would rather like to wait for the official beta.

Ah crud, I can't log in. I thought the other day after the dialog for Photo Gallery came up that I was able to. But now when I attempt to, it doesn't do anything; after I click OK on the login dialog it dismisses but doesn't log me in. Sorry for the confusion guys!

Here's an About dialog from WL Photo Gallery:
