Windows Live Essentials Available Starting Tomorrow

Windows Live Essentials, a suite of online and desktop services that includes hotmail, messenger, sync, movie maker and photo gallery – will go live for everyone tomorrow. Until now the service has only been available to a limited set of beta testers. The services will be available here when it goes live sometime on Thursday.

The desktop portions of the services only work on Windows devices. English, French, Japanese, Portuguese, Simplified Chinese, and Spanish versions of the service will be available.

Photo Fuse alone makes the suite worth trying out, in our opinion. The photo application, called Windowls Live Photo Gallery, will also now have facial recognition and person tagging prompts as well.
