Default Windows Live Messenger?

What do you guys think of this new service?, it seems pretty nice but however I experience the service unavailable message quite often, but other than that my views on it seem pretty good, it should be better when it comes of "BETA"

I have had no real problems with it, the service seems to be pretty consistent at least no better or worse then using msn messenger 7.5 etc. In fact I think I prefer this above 7.5 which I didn't at first, there is a bit more flexibility in managing it and the ability to receive offlines has to be a good thing, and something which yahoo, icq etc have been able to do for a long time.

In regards to connecting, I am logged in now and its all ok.

it seems about the same as 7.5 so far...video may be just a tiny bit clearer......also, this release is out of beta now.

the audio during a webcam session is still as crappy (at least for me) as it was when i was using version 7.5 (i posted more info about this problem in another thread here.... http://www.computerforums.org/showthread.php?t=39656 ).

it pisses me off too because i did an audio only chat, and the audio was crystal clear. i wish the audio came in that good when i was webcaming!
