Hopefully, we can hide the social panel.

How many people still use the official Microsoft Client without any modifications? I personally do not even use it, I use Adium on my Mac and Pidgin on my PC

looks like someone puked up a rainbow.

Haha, very nice comment :)

Anyway, back on topic, im sure i can just adjust any stuff that i didnt like with themes / hacks from MessengerPlus once they release a version that works well and stable with me.

Maybe its because I switched to a mac at work, but my god, Windows live apps are hideous.

I must be the only person who actually likes the new Windows Live Messenger :p (or, at least what we've seen of it). I love the fact the Windows Live teams seem to be focussing more on the social updates and the only situation where the extra interface elements would be an annoyance to me would be if I had a lack of screen space; if that was the case, I'd just turn the extra panel off :) If the team are adding things which are options, I do not see why they should be complained about so much because some people will like them.

I'm looking forward to trying out tabbed chats as well (Y) :yes:

The ads and the huge bloated look is ugly. We need something beautiful, we can have updates and all, but it needs to be cleaner. Get rid of the ads, you are already rich enough. We need WPF implemented and 3D effects. That way we can have a UI that can fit in social updates, but this 2D bloated look won't work.

If I hear him say 'Microsoft Gold Certified' or 'Microsoft Professional Certified' one more time, I'll scream. :|

This is fake. These screenshots have been posted already.

One thing does look to be for sure: Bigger ad and Messenger taking up more space.

A-Patch FTW.

Thank god I don't use any first party chat clients. Trillian does everything I need cleanly in a smaller package that uses less RAM.

How is it so 2009? I think you'll find the Facebook membership is still growing in size. I love the new direction Windows Live is going in and the social updates which will be present in Windows Live Messenger 2010.

This app is so nasty now. The screenshots doesn't do justice to how bloated and nasty it is.

I don't see why they integrated social networking into the application. Nobody really uses that stuff except kids.

:rolleyes: I know many older people who use Facebook, especially those between the ages of 20 and 30. I also know many who will be happy to see all their social updates in one place, not to mention how much of a godsend Facebook chat support will be (seeing as the chat service on Facebook.com often does not function very well).

A source for what? :s

I'm speaking from personal experience. You don't have to believe me, but from personal experience I've seen many people between the ages of 20 and 30 using Facebook. I imagine there will be official figures somewhere - maybe I'll look around - but either way, why would Microsoft include something in their software unless they are sure people will find it useful?

Can you hazard a guess as to which age-group contains the most users of Windows Live Messenger? I'd imagine it's the same as Facebook.

Heck, I've seen a lot of people 40-50 use it. including my mother, actually my grandmother's even on facebook.
