Review last updated: 15/07/15

Pros
  • Great package of apps to get started with
  • Windows Movie Maker still excellent
  • Live Mail is a solid app for those without Outlook
  • Many useful features in Photo Gallery
  • SkyDrive integration is unobtrusive
Cons
  • Live Messenger struggling to stay relevant
  • Live Writer is very basic

"Says it's in English but the installer is in French"

Says it's in English but the installer is in French with no option to switch languages.
