Default Windows Live OneCare 2.0 Beta – On the Road to Release!

On September 10 we rolled out another planned refresh of the beta before we ship V2. We’re in the home stretch now, and we’ve managed to come this far with the help of all of you, our excellent beta testers. We’re not quite done yet though - we still have a little spit ‘n’ polish to apply, so keep sending us that feedback. In the meantime, we wanted to give you one last look at the new features we’re bringing out in V2.

Remember, if you’re thinking about introducing a friend or family member to Windows Live OneCare, tell them to visit Windows Live OneCare for the latest released version of the service.

Focus On V2: Printer Sharing

So far you’ve heard from Mona Akmal on Circles and Scott Hoogerwerf on WiFi Security. With this last installment of the beta newsletter, we wanted to present another new feature that takes advantage of the multiple PC environment that’s at the core of V2. Here’s Neeraj Garg, a Program Manager on the OneCare team, to talk about printer sharing.

Print from any PC in your home to any printer in your home. That’s the simple goal behind OneCare Printer Sharing. As soon as we decided that OneCare V2 would be about simplifying management of the whole home network rather than a single PC, we looked at lots of problems we could tackle and printer sharing rose to the top. We found that even among the technical folks here in the team (myself included), people either did not know to how to set up printer sharing or hadn’t taken the time to configure it. As we talked to more people, the value of simplifying this task became readily apparent.

To see printer sharing in action, all you need to do is:

+ Have two (or more) PCs in the same OneCare Circle
+ Make sure that both PCs are connected to the same router
+ Attach a USB printer to one of the computers
