Calendar problem solved, but no new Calendar

OK, we knew it was probably wishful thinking, but last week we noticed that the Calendar was having a “problem”, and we jumped to the conclusion that maybe, just maybe, we’d be getting a Modern/Metro style calendar in place of the Windows Live Wave 4 Calendar that’s been a placeholder since July, when went live.

But alas, it’s not to be, apparently, as the problem has been solved, you’re now able to add birthdays to the Calendar, but unfortunately nothing else has changed.

calendar normal

For the life of us, we can’t figure out what is so hard about a calendar., although it is still officially in a “preview” state, is incomplete without it, and we just don’t see much of an excuse that it’s taken almost half a year (not counting the almost two years we’ve gone since Wave 4 without a significant Calendar update) and still no calendar.

But anyway, it’s “running normally”, for whatever that’s worth.
