    It's horrible, it took me almost an hour to even see my contacts, instead I have a huge WL newsfeed on the left. You can't change your nickname anymore, you can't send ink messages and the smilies look really weird now.

    Needless to say, I downgraded as soon as I saw it.

    You can't change your display name, it uses the name you signed up with for Windows Live.

    Also theres banner ads in conversation windows.

    Yeah, I found that but it was still split into columns, I just like my plain list view.

    Ran the beta, ran the final build. Its a decent program, I prefer it to the previous version. I'm using digsby at the moment though because my uni blocks wlm ):

    The new update is good with the UI, but bad with features. A thing you notice when first using it is that it tries to be something like a facebook. Not being able to use your own nickname really bugs me. Oh, and groups don't show how many people are online/offline anymore.

    i don't really call it feature bad, altho i only use WLM for chat with words, and the basic smilies, plus i've noticed on my vista computer it runs bit more smother than the previous version
