What is the general reaction to the move by Microsoft to dump the Windows Live brand and include this software as basic components of Windows 8? Good, bad, indifferent, love it, hate it, ...?

Does this help Windows 8?

Is this just another example of how Microsoft moved Internet Explorer into Windows, providing another vector (vectors) for invasive malware?

Maybe it begs the question: is this move necessary to make Windows 8 acceptable to users?

Comments, feedback, observations?
