We complained for years that Windows was bloated, and that each successive
version got bigger by including all kinds of programs that were not really
part of the operating system itself. So, Microsoft make Windows 7 less
bloated than Vista - by leaving out some programs, such as Mail, Photo
Gallery, Movie Maker, Messenger... But, for those of us who want those
functions - and don't want to buy a third-party program - Microsoft provides
the Windows Live Essentials. FREE!
Just go to http://download.live.com
and take what you want off the rack -
for free. Download and install whatever you like. ;<)
I say it's like the Ford dealer saying, "No, the new car does not come with
a radio. You can go to Best Buy or Wal*Mart or wherever and buy the one you
like best. Or, just drive around back to our service department and we will
install one of ours free."
And, as Mikey said, Microsoft does not host any Windows 7 newsgroups; they
want us to use the forums. :>(
There is at least one Usenet newsgroup for Win7 (alt.windows7.general);
perhaps others will appear in time.
