MSBLOG Exclusive: Windows Live is about to get a hell of a lot louder

September 24th, 2006 by Zack Whittaker

We might be wrong about certain Live software being bundled with Windows Vista by the way… we’ll have to wait and see – more information as soon as we get it

 Please note – no official word from Microsoft yet, and we’re going on speculation, different sources of information and other influential people – there may not be such a thing, however we’ll soon work it out – just give us time.

    So Space’s Will Be Interagrated With Soapbox hmmm
    Dont you think live is getting a bit crowded?

  2. Zack Whittaker Says:

    It probably will be integrated – by a “blog it” button no less, but I think that’s about it. Soapbox has been in internal beta for a while, only just “public” – but what the diagram was to show that Live Media Center will have and/or include some/parts/all of those listed products in one way or another… more soon 😛 🙂

    […] Remember – you saw it first here! – more details to come from our soures soon, but it’s been a busy couple of weeks for me so haven’t had time to type it all up yet. A beta should be available by the end of 2006, and final naming of the product is still not set yet, although we get the idea it might be Windows Live Media Center; not confirmed but a bloody good guess. It’ll be a long beta, spanning at least 6 months until it’s released – probably nearer the Vista SP1/Longhorn Server launch than the actual finished launch of Vista itself, so mid-summer/autumn time. Quote – Liveside Codename Nemo is designed to be an add-on for Windows Vista (Home Premium and Vista Ultimate editions), that integrates Spaces, Messenger and Live Call into a UI designed for large monitors and TVs. Nemo essentially creates a Windows Live Media Center, and is optimized for use by Microsoft Media Center remote, as well as keyboard. Of particular note is the 3D Gallery view for browsing Windows Live Spaces, shown below, presumably built using the new Windows Presentation Foundation that will be included in Windows Vista. […]
