    After a trickle of updates and "betas", Microsoft Corp. is ready to start promoting its official package of free desktop programs for e-mail, instant messaging, blogging and sharing photos. The programs are "essentially a free upgrade for Windows," said Brian Hall, general manager of Windows Live at Microsoft. The package includes Windows Live Mail client, which should replace the old and integrated Outlook Express. The package also includes Windows Live Photo Gallery, Live Writer for writing blog posts, and the Live Messenger instant-messaging software. The applications aren't much different from test versions previously available.

    I hope Live will be for free like they said at first for PC. They also said that you would have to pay a while back to play 360 players, and that's ok with me.

    Live IS Free on PC. Shame the installer isn't 64 bit compatible....

    It wasn't, but as of yesterday, the latest installer worked in my Vista 64.
