Take a sneak peek at Yahoo! Messenger for Windows Vista?

Thanks for your patience as we built this first version. Check it out, play around, then share your feedback with us.

Try out the new Yahoo! Messenger for Vista.

Check it out!

Huh. That's not half bad, really. Shame I don't really use Y! to talk to more than two people. No point to use a single protocol client for that...

Finally! :D .. woot!

EDIT:

OK now i'm kinda angry. This is what windows live messenger should have looked like for Vista. DAMN shame that MS does'nt have a good team designing their GUI.

Scrolling in it is slow, animations are slow, like popout windows and whatnot. I think it is Microsoft's fault, Switcher has the same issues.

It is kinda overhyped lol or at least not ready yet.

Finally - after a 1-and-a-half year teaser on that website!

I like it, but it needs work.

Preferences screen - I was like what the hell???? But then I realized that it's a Beta, after all .... the first beta.

Hmm methinks Yahoo Mess for Vista is gonna be 9.5 or to that matter lol.
