Windows Live Essentials 2011

Have anyone installed the new Windows Live Essentials 2011? I've had it since the beta version, and I like it. The new interface and Facebook integrations just makes it better. Although I'm an Office Outlook user, I've tried the Windows Live Mail app, and it also has some improvements and a new ribbon interface.

Have you tried it? What do you think?

The problem with the messenger in my opinion is that there isn't an option for a display name any more, just the profile name. The integration with facebook is a good feature and I really like Windows Live Mail. I haven't installed anything else from it though.

Well, you could edit the name in your Windows Live account, but yeah, that's the down side. I guess Microsoft wants to make thing more "social" with our real names from our Windows Live account.

I haven't tried it, but it is available now for Windows 2008 R2. I'm an Outlook 2010 user. Don't really like Outlook as it constantly has problems connecting to my accounts.
