Windows Live Essentials Beta Announced

As we posted last week, the beta will indeed become public sometime tomorrow. Piero Sierra just announced it on Inside Windows Live:

Tomorrow, hot on the heels of the Hotmail roll-out, the new Windows Live Essentials becomes available for public beta testing. Windows Live Essentials beta requires Windows Vista or Windows 7, and is available in English, French, Japanese, Portuguese, Simplified Chinese, or Spanish.  As soon as the beta goes live tomorrow (we’ll update this blog post when it does), you’ll be able to get it from here.
