Sometimes the old version of something is better than the new one.

I felt this way about Windows Movie Maker — an easy to use, flexible, and free movie editing program that used to come preinstalled on Windows machines. With Vista and Windows 7 though, Microsoft is pushing Windows Live Movie Maker. In my experience, it doesn’t have some of the features of the old Movie Maker. Maybe there are advantages as well, but I haven’t found them.

Anyway, I just found out though that you can easily install the old v 2.6 Windows Movie Maker on a Windows 7 machine. (Don’t know why I didn’t try to do this before.:) Here’s the link. Enjoy.
