Messenger 8.0 beta for download

Well I’m impressed with the UI of the new MSN Messenger 8.0 beta, or as I really should be calling it: Windows Live Messenger 8.0 beta.  A selection of existing MSN messenger users have been invited to try the new beta version. I can’t give you the link, as I’ve only got one invite…

THe UI is very slick, the look and feel is smoother, I’ve got the option to view messages sent to me whilst I was offline (damn useful when my wireless connection is misbehaving).  There’s a new Sharing Folders option and voice calling to landlines and mobiles.  Interesting stuff…

You can have a look at information on the beta here… and look forward to when the beta goes on genreal release…. and be patient!
