    Has anyone got any inside information at what time this will become live?

    I have downloaded and installed it.I am very impressed by integration of social networking with Windows Live Messenger. They have done an awesome job.

    Default Photo Gallery

    The beta Photo Gallery is not as useful as the current version. Tagging is a nitemare. MS has removed the Tag Tree and the easy to get to "Not Tagged". Presently you can drag multiple files to the Tag Tree for tagging, and instantly see which photos are not tagged, it's GONE! The new method is impossibly slow and unfriendly.

    I've reinstalled the current version which I believe is MUCH better suited to this photographers needs.

    Hopefully this wil be corrected by the final version...until then I will stick with the current version.

    Has anyone had any problems with this beta?

    I installed the beta programs over the original and started having some difficulties.
    I couldn't sign in to Live Messenger and Live Mail failed to start at all.

    My memory usage is high.

    Also I cannot drag and move the main WLM windows, although I can move the chat windows :|

    Why cant MS provide a full installer...People with multiple PCs will find it troublesome to download everything again and again for all their PCs....
