Just an FYI that the new look Windows Live Essentials stuff (Windows Live Photo Gallery, Movie Maker, Mail, Writer, Messenger and the new Live Sync) is available in public beta. I've been using it for many months now and highly recommend it. Just be aware that if you use Live Mesh this will remove it and replace with Live Sync. It also only works on Windows Vista and Windows 7; nothing for Windows XP.
