Did anyone else download the new Windows Live Messenger? The 8.5 version?

It's fucking stupid.

I just downloaded it, hoping it would be minor changes. I opened it up to see the whole thing had changed.

Fuck. Don't download it if you have the chance.
I hope it's cold, everyday, where you are.

Yeah, I don't like it, and it's loads slower that the older ones.

Misleading thread title, by the way.

Uhh you're a couple of months late on that.


I may be, but the link just started showing up yesterday. (Or I wasn't paying attention.)
I hope it's cold, everyday, where you are.

Cheers buddy, my little brother is pressuring me to download it lately and I've been reluctant to because I didn't think it'd be worth my time or computer space. Now I know for sure what to do.

It looks heaps better...

no way. the display pics look better, but nothing else does. its all one colour... its gross.

also, its so inconvenient not having the 'last message sent' thing at the bottom of the window. now its inside the chat box.

everything has just been made that tiny bit more annoying...

"Live/MSN" hasn't until now been updated in about 2 years.

Did anyone else think the whole live thing, and livespaces, blogs etc fell flat on their arse?
#22
I was wondering whether to download this, but regarding the responses to this thread, I don't think I will.
#24
Hang on is this a NEW update as I've had no notification about it what so ever and I'm running Live Messenger 8.1.

Is it just me or does Live Messenger/newer MSN's use more ram and stuff than say, MSN 6.0? I think that was the best. Bit sad to use it now though..
#25
i have 8.5 and my msn plus thing works perfectly. don't like the skin? download a new one.

you can change the colour of it but that's the default skin

Same, and Opera's decided to screw this post form up >_> I'll screen it now.

Edit: Bah I forgot my photobucket account's password. Screw it.

What's the big deal? It's not that different, and the changes are very minor.

Of course it does, in the same vain that MSN 6 uses more than the first incarnation. I don't see what point you're trying to make.
