Skype is undoubtedly the most popular application on all Operating System platforms for video calling. Skype enables you to chat and have video call with your friends and family via VOIP (Voice over Internet Protocol). Skype has recently been acquired by Microsoft and still continues to be the most popular application for video calling since it provides video calling in high-resolution with excellent voice and video quality. And to top of it all, it is a free application for Windows, Mac OS, Linux as well as for Android and iOS.
If you love your Windows PC and like Microsoft branded applications you can never miss on the Windows Live Essential suite of applications. To introduce it generously, Windows Live Essentials is Windows’ counterpart of Apple iLife suite of applications.
Windows Live Essentials consists of the most popular Microsoft branded applications : Windows Live Mail, Windows Live Movie Maker, Windows Messenger, Windows Live Writer, Windows Sync and Family Safety. Not being such an avid Microsoft enthusiast myself, I do not make much use of all these applications frequently. But Windows Live Write is an amazing product which can never be missed by any regular blogger.
