That answer is all one could expect from a "Microsoft Support Engineer'. It is not an answer, it is a lazy response that obfuscates the issue. Who the **** wants to sit here clicking on reference links? Try taking the time to answer the question properly and clearly. The fact is that Windows Movie Maker, despite its shortcomings, is logical and easy to learn. Windows Live Movie Maker is the product of geeky developers trying to justify their job by producing a piece of confusing nonsense that would be considered as an 'upgrade' because it looks different to its predecessor. The fact is that Windows Movie Maker is MORE like professional movie editor sofware than Live Movie Maker, which is just non-standard junk that looks more like a programmer graduate's degree project. The design of Movie Maker enabled me to make the easy transition to more advanced professional software, but this can never be achieved with the Windows Live Movie Maker, which is as stupid as its ridiculously long name.
