yeh, i was shocked about windows mail, and turns out its because they are pushing their windows live calendar/mail/movie maker/and photo gallery.
they all replace the standard vista mail/calendar/move maker and photo gallery.
they suck muchly. though the prices for windows 7 pre order is damn good compared to before.
