  • The very base features have not changed, thankfully, which at least gives some relief to old-school users which means they don't have to re-learn the entire process of image editing all over again.

  • Live Mesh seems to have been re-branded as something simpler and easier to use. Though will this make the cut seeing as LogMeIn Free and Dropbox combined have been offering this for free for years already?

    Apparently if you want to select the apps you want to install, you have to download a different installer - be careful which link you click on at the beta website!!

    Which is really stupid, but that's the way it works right now.
