Windows Live Messenger 2011, Movie Maker 2011, Photo Gallery 2011 – Yes if you are on windows XP you cannot use these new amazing products by Microsoft Windows Live Essential. Everyone out there with Windows XP is very much annoyed and left alone with this step of Microsoft, that they didn’t give the product on their every best selling operating system.
Windows Live which includes; Messenger, Mail, Writer, Photo Gallery, Movie Maker, Toolbar, Family Safe and Silverlight is installed using an Online installer from http://download.live.com. Many people don’t like this way of running the installation process online. Rather they prefer to download everything before and then install it from their own computer.
After a long long period of Beta finally Yahoo! released their new Messenger. The look of the Yahoo Messenger 9.0 has been changed and the new look is a little troubling for new users. We have been using the old look since so long and the users were used to of that look. But the new look espeically the Windows Vista supported Yahoo! Messenger 9.0 is an entire change of the outlook.
All the rest of the features of Yahoo! Messenger are almost the same as old one. But there is something strange with the versions on different operating systems. Microsoft Windows XP compatible Yahoo! Messenger 9.0 has all the features, but Windows Vista has limited features. I wonder why Windows Vista’s features are less, though Microsoft is promoting Vista on a massive scale.
