I still use this on Windows 10. After investing the time to identify people in photos ~20,000 I am not about to change without a migration path.
You can still install and the install software is on the Wayback Machine.
Face data is in the files as metadata but getting it into other software seems impossible without writing code.
This is kind of nice because it'll use native file structure for organization, and it keeps just about everything in the metadata of the image which makes it sync-able to my laptop.
Ughh.. I did really like Window Live Photo Gallery until the new Beta came out.. I can't stand it now and may actually switch back to Picasa. Fundamentally, two items make the tool completely unusable to me:
For dates, you have to turn the option on. It took me a while to figure that out. There is now a close button in the upper right on the ribbon to get back to the album view.

I've tried so far: Picasa, ACDSee, Lightroom and for my needs it takes them all. It is easy to use, integrates with all kinds of online services (using flickr with Picasa was really annoying) and supports tagging.
