    I know his post is right. But anyone following Windows Live a bit (Inside Windows Live Blog) or LiveSide.net probabbly allready know. That is my point, he only 'reports' news but never gives any own insights. 

     

    PS: the link does not work yet because the beta is not available yet. I wish microsoft would not say 'Thursday 24th' because of the timezones that is like Friday 25th for most of the people in the world. It's allready 17.30 here...

    I tried it and it forze on my most important mail. Messenger forze as well, but, I am not using it anyway. Gallery = Crap Crying . They abused Ribbon too much. Sigh, I think I need to find a distributable copy of Wave3. I can't say much about mail because it froze. Mail is my most important app, I hope they don't screw it up.

    Has anyone been able to chat to Facebook friends on it or even see their status?

     

    I can only send the Facebook equivalent to email and the status only changes if I have the same contact in Messenger and they are signed into it.

     

    Anyone had a different experience?

     

    As for what I think of the whole thing. The fonts in the Social part of Messenger are too large and render poorly. It would be nice to have a choice to change the font sizes, or even the font.

     

    Also disappointing is that Photo Gallery still does not support the raw photos my Sony DSLR takes. It keeps telling me to download a driver that I have already installed. The driver works for Windows itself but not for Photo Library. Perhaps it's not their fault but I imagine it's in their interests to be compatible with all the major raw formats.

     

    Actually does anyone know the correct channel to send feedback for this Beta?

    re. Contact de-duplication - try disconnecting and reconnecting your FB and WL profiles

    Overall I've been impressed with the new products. I'm glad we have the ability to turn off all the social stuff in messenger (switch to "compact view".

     

    Mail, at least, seems to be a real beta - i.e. I'm hitting bugs:

     

    • Last night, when I first installed it, it kept throwing up a .net 4 error (although that may be related to a .net 4 update that had just come through WU and was awaiting a restart)
    • Performance feels EXTREMELY slow and laggy when navigating my mail and opening/creating messages
    • I had an email that the "not junk" button would randomly refuse to move to the inbox

    But I'm still overall impressed with what I've used of this release so far Smiley

     

    Good work guys

     

    EDIT: And I forgot to mention, the installer failed the first time around and reverted all its changes, but worked fine the second time.

    And which idiot decided to go ahead and install the Bing toolbar into IE and FF without asking me first? Seriously: DO NOT WANT. If people want the bing toolbar they're perfectly capable of getting it themselves.

     

    EDIT: And, to make matter worse, you can't even uninstall it from the  FF plugin manager - only disable it. To uninstall it I have to go to Programs and Features. Anyone would think you're trying to make this difficult for me.

    Aha! I'll try adding Facebook again. I also tought it might have something to do with the fact I'm not on the new hotmail and contacts web interface yet.

    There's a separate installer that allows you to select what you want (so you can uncheck the Bing toolbar). Yes, this is not communicated properly. It was only after I'd begun the automatic (non-customizable installer) that I realized this was the case, so I cancelled that install, downloaded the alternate installer, and then installed it using that.

     

    I don't know who thought that was a better idea than a choice between default and custom install in the installer itself, but they were wrong.
