The next version of Windows Live is now available in beta.
You can download it from http://explore.live.com/windows-live-essentials-beta
As new feature, you will find the integration of remote access and SkyDrive access (Windows Live Sync), the new Messenger and a new Live Mail and Live Writer.
A good thing is the Windows Live Sync can communicate with cell phones (but apparently not in France ), and you can connect you Messenger with additional social networks (such as Facebook, Viadeo, YouTube…).
Another new thing is the integration with Outlook 2010 and his social networking.
