    Oh god, not more bells and whistles to remove :tongue: :thumbdn:

    What the hell is it? Just MSN 8 or something?

    edit: Thati s bells and whistles that've been pulled from MSN plus, it seems. Sigh @ Microsoft.

    Had it and canned it. Just a bunch more pretty shit. If you want it bad google it and get the proxy work round. Not worth the time and effort.

    I did the same. Looks pretty but was a bitch to use. I did have an earlier build mind you...It was called msn8 at the time. Went straight back to msn 7.5

    Its actually better than the old MSN 7.5 IMO. Once you get use to the interface, you start to think the old MSN looks daggy.

    Eh you would rather use 7.5 until the proper release, it aint really any different apart from a cheesy hard to use skin

    I like trying software out before it is released, good way to see how it is going, and it gives me something to do :p

    Now talk about a program that will take a while to get used to..office 12, thats just random (couldnt try it out because the c# interops dont work with it :()

    dont turn this into a "send me an invite!" thread.

    I heard that this version is ENTIRELY skinnable, finally microsoft are reaching out and offering more community customization
