Windows Live Essentials replaced by Windows Essentials 2012!

Good news for those who blogging! Microsoft released an new version of Windows Essentials, Windows Essentials 2012. The software suite is especially popular because of Live Writer which enables you publish blogs quick and efficiently.


Significant changes are an updated version of Windows Live Writer, Windows Live Mesh is replaced by SkyDrive and Messenger by Skype. A complete overview of the release notes can be found here.


A missed opportunity is perhaps the lack of support for Windows RT ARM based architecture.

Windows Essentials 2012 can be downloaded here.

Happy blogging Smile
