I've recently switched to Outlook 2013. Still needs polish though.

"Will Windows Essentials still be available for download"?
• Windows Essentials 2012 suite will be available for download until it reaches its end of support date on January 10, 2017.
"What happens to my already installed Essentials Applications like Movie Maker"?
• Already installed applications will continue to work as they do today. There is an increased security risk associated with use of unsupported products past their end of support date.
"Are there any recommended alternatives"?
• Movie Maker will soon be available from Windows Store for Windows 10 users.
• Mail is available as a free built-in application for Windows 8.1 and above.
• Photos is available as a free built-in application for Windows 8.1 and above.
• Live Writer is available as an open-source solution.
• One Drive is an inbox feature for Windows 8.1 and above.
• Family Safety is an inbox feature for Windows 8.1 and above.
I've missed Movie Maker being stripped from windows 10 so that's good to know one will be available on the store soon! Hope it's not too long to wait
I presume movie maker is still not available on the store? I did search and saw there was a 'movie moments' app by Microsoft available. Is this alternative to movie maker they were hinting at?
Remember folks, get your Windows Live Essentials Suite downloaded and installed while you still can!
Deadline: January 10, 2017!

Just re-installed them on Build 15042, (twice!), both installers still work.
Apparently, there is still no suitable alternative for Movie Maker:
(From MS or 3rd party developers)
(If they appear as something like Paint 3D, I'll stick with the classic apps!)
So in September Microsoft were planning to make a Window 10 Store version of Movie Maker, but now they've given up?
That doesn't say a lot for how easy it is to develop Windows 10 Store apps, then!
Perhaps they're relying on a 3rd party to develop a decent one.
I haven't seen a suitable one yet!
Photo Gallery is still tops with it's endless array of options and features!
(I dislike waiting for UP apps to load!)
One thing I found (I did an in-place upgrade) is that Windows Live Mail stopped working. Even when I added a new account it couldn't connect. I ended up using the Outlook App
Hey everyone, I posted this on SevenForums already, wanted to share here as well since it is more appropriate.
The pro version for Windows 10 looks to be a free offer at the moment.

WInX comes with Defender, but I prefer Security Essentials. Is there a way to upgrade to MS Security Essentials?
Does anyone know why Microsoft canceled support/discontinued Microsoft Expression Web and why Windows Live Essentials, especially Windows Live Writer hasn't been updated in years? Both are great products but Windows Live Writer is my heartbeat...
