Goodbye, beta. The assortment of communication and other web services linked together under the Windows Live name offers a single sign-on to access all of its products.

That one-time sign-on makes it easier for people to use email, instant messaging, and all of the products dressed up under the Windows Live brand. The single sign-on takes the form of the Windows Live ID.

People with multiple Windows Live IDs have the opportunity to link all of them together from the service’s management screen. For those who have experimented with Spaces under one ID, and Hotmail under another, for example, this brings the two together.

The services remain the same. On the web, there is Hotmail, Spaces, and the new Events, a calendar and sharing product for planning get-togethers and other activities.

Microsoft really wants people to pick up the package of PC software for Windows Live. Those downloadable products include Mail, Messenger, the new Photo Gallery, Writer, and the Windows Live Toolbar.

Part of Microsoft’s OneCare security service may be obtained as part of Windows Live. The Family Safety product provides a shield to keep inappropriate content off one’s computer and away from younger Internet users.

The launch of Windows Live took the beta label off the various services. Microsoft’s promotion of the new Windows Live included children’s medical nonprofit Operation Smile, which will receive a portion of Windows Live Spaces’ advertising revenue through November and December.
