there is NO way MSN is ready to be final, there is many many bugs to fix, I already found 3 of them

I didn't say it was ready. I was replying to xerxes inquiry.

Well, there are some people that have been invited to test it, and a lot more that havent - check the "request for invites thread" if you wanna know how many :D . I dont know how they are releasing it concerning regions... but it has been released to the: USA, UK, Japan, Australia, Canada, China, France, Germany, Brazil, Korea, Netherlands, and Spain. Right now, WLM 8 is in "Managed Beta," which means that it is only avaliable to MSFT, MCI employees users who have tested previous closed-betas; users who signed up through http://connect.microsoft.com; some loyal blog readers , and handful of others.

Hope this helps!

Yeah it did, thx :happy:

The list also includes those of us who are MSN Beta Butterflies (especially those that tested MSN Messenger 7.x; I was selected from this group). For this reason, the number of testers will become MUCH larger than any previous beta of MSN or Windows Messenger (I actually expect WLM to replace both MSN Messenger *and* Windows Messenger, as a truly unified Messenger from Microsoft simply makes too much sense, and the Messengers are, to a large extent, interchangeable).

My Microsoft Passport dates back to the very oldest days of the Passport credentialing system (when Windows 2000 Professional was in flower, and Windows XP hadn't gone into beta testing yet) and was used with the first 32-bit Windows Messenger (which Windows 2000 Professional included) and I've packed it for every beta I've been in since (and throughout my MSN Beta Butterfly days, now heading into their third *year*) from Windows Messenger, to MSN Messenger, and now Windows Live Messenger, and my Passport creds haven't changed (and no, they aren't based on Hotmail; in fact, they have outlasted two Hotmail accounts),

That explains why I don't have access to WLM8.0... I am a damn Canadian.

As they'd say in South Park : BLAME CANADA!!!

I hope WLM8.0 is not ready to be final, because I have seen things about it and so far... it looks.... I won't say it because I always say negative stuff about MS and I don't want to make myself a reputation if I already have one, but WLM8.0 is clearly not in my color palette. And I'm not only talking about the GUI.
