This is the counter that you see (to be correct that was the clock at Monday evening 21:44 GMT+1) when you visit https://www.countdowntobetter.com. This is the counter that counts down to the 2nd Windows Live wave. In other words in about 1 day (and a few hours) Microsoft will launch the final versions of several of it’s Windows Live Beta products. This will include, Messenger, Writer (at last), Mail, Photo Gallery, Famility Safety and (the online service) SkyDrive. As you can see at the Windows Live Betas home page. Let’s hope the installer works fine on x64 Windows. The beta installer didn’t work for me (it was a known issue @ beta support). If the installer isn’t working, visit this knowledgebase article for the first help.
