Windows Live Messenger Beta (Invites)

Andrew Connell was nice enough to send me an invite to Windows Live Messenger's beta, and I've been messing around with it for the past few days. I haven't really done much with it - no voice or video, so I can't really say too much about it. So far though, it's a lot like MSN Messenger, but with a nice new UI. And more tabs. So far, no reason for me to switch from using Trillian for Messenger functionality. At least not until everyone else has version 8, and then there may be some incentive for the voice stuff. If you're out there though, and want to test out the voice capabilities, let me know. I'm curious too. I don't have a web cam, so I can't do much with that part though.

Anyway, I now have invites to let others into the beta. It's amazing how GMail started the phenom, and it's just continued. So if you want one, let me know! I need an email address to send the invite to, so you're probably best off just shooting me a quick email to jross @ Get 'em while they're hot!
