Windows Live to have more prominent role in Windows 7?

By on

Windows Live is expected to take a much larger role with the next version of Microsoft’s flagship Windows OS, Windows 7, with Mail, Photo Gallery and Movie Maker being removed from the operating system and will be replaced with their Windows Live counterparts.

While Windows Vista was actively encouraging that people download the Windows Live equivalents, they still had Windows Mail, Windows Photo Gallery and Windows Movie Maker on – but had their features reduced so that people would upgrade to them.

This will at least keep the regulators happy, as Microsoft will be removing them so that it can compete with their rivals (Windows Live Mail would compete with Mozilla Thunderbird); and will also most likely make the development of the operating system much more faster.

Thanks for coming onboard!
We're excited to have you.
