Q. What is Windows Live Essentials?

A. With Windows 7, a number of components that were previously part of the OS will be moved into Windows Live Essentials, enabling richer services and better update schedules, such as Mail, Movie Maker, Messenger (which is linked from the OS in Vista) and Photo Gallery. These programs will be available at http://download.live.com/ and both released and beta versions of the software can be downloaded, including tools for blogging, photo gallery, movie maker, messenger, mail and Internet Explorer (IE)-based utilities to help organize and limit Internet exposure for children
