    well the adverts are there, but its better in the way that you can save your settings in the server (displayname and picture, and personal status message) so when you go to another pc , and login it goes with you. There are also other things, Its oulined in the link.

    What features are in 8.1 (beta) that I would need but are not in 8.0?

    It would be great if windows live messenger will  implement other protocols in the future, like YM!. (YM! sucks and gaim lacks lots of features)

    It is crashing on Vista RC2 all the time. DEP problems. Annoying problem.

    It would be nice if you could disconnect from the different protocols (YM! or MSN) like trillian.

    That can be fixed with updating your version of Flash.

    Instructions are here at the bottom:

    Can you update us as to what will be added with respect to add-in APIs for 8.1?

    It's not supposed to. It's not a "WLM can connect to the Yahoo network", but "The MSN and Yahoo networks are bridged, so messages can come through".

    So in other words...if I want to use only wlm I must add my 100+ contacts from the YM! account to my wlm account... That is... Expressionless

    ... Better than not being able to talk to them at all?
