I wouldn't call it 'Brand new'. I've switched permanently to Pidgin, and I haven't looked back yet.

Thanks for that! Never heard of it before. Installed it and Im in love with it already. Amazing!! :D

UI-wise I love Microsoft Messenger for Mac. It looks extremely clean, has no adds whatsoever by default and isn't filled withtoo many useless features someone mentioned earlier. Downside is that it currently lacks Webcam and Audio support, but that's supposed to change according to Microsoft's MacBU.

It's too bad that with every update Microsoft completely throws Windows XP's UI overboard. While Messenger 8.5 and Media Player 11 look (more or less) at home on Windows Vista, they look like freaks on Windows XP.

Now when you have your XP customized to look like Vista ;)

The Mac version of WLM looks better than the windows version.

WLM itself is too bloated, but A-Patch fixes that :p It's just too bad it isn't compatible yet.

Am I the only one who finds the new UI mediocre? I like the current one better. The new one is a bit too overdone with gloss, and glass borders.

Because it's a beta only meant for internal use which has been leaked. It therefore qualifies as warez.

Haven't used MSN Messenger since version 6 a few years ago, far too satisfied with Skype..
