Windows According to Microsoft beat writer Mary Jo Foley, word is that "Windows 7's mail, photo-management and movie-maker subsystems applets are all being replaced by optionally installable Windows Live equivalents." To many, replacing subsystems with services is a good thing. But what will the self-professed geeks think? Cnet seems to think that "Windows 7 must appeal to geeks--or else!"

My god, this sucks balls. The Windows Live version of mail was an epic fail, and I actually happen to REALLY like Vista's Mail application.

Bah.

Windows Mail sucked, it was just Outlook Express with a minor facelift. How you could like that outdated piece of junk and then turn around and say Windows Live Mail was "epic fail" is completely beyond me.
