i made the mistake of installing the latest leaked version.
sooo many bugs.
msn 7 is pretty good though. i've noticed a lot of the dmsn features are included now. i guess microsoft is trying to limit 3rd party services, by offering a more complete product.
one feature i'd like to see...an ignore function. blocking is too harsh, especially with msngeeks.com becoming more popular. Id much rather have the choice to ignore a user...eg. when the user logs in i dont have to see their nickname popup.
i've never used trillian but i think i heard that it supports such a feature.
7.0.0425 should work fine. That's the public beta issued by MS. If you installed that latest leaked build with the personalized messages and WMP10 support, there are some known bugs. I'm staying away from that one for now.
when users go offline, it doesnt give any indication within a conversation window.
the vcard things dont do away when you click away (i liked that in the public beta).
also, if you hover over a name on your contact list, you dont see their email address. so of course, people being ridiculous and thinking having mile long msn names is cool, become impossible to identify quickly and easily.
i took it out and reinstalled the public beta again.
O...just lil stuff. I did notice the email thing tho which kinda bugs me but o well. Beta's arent suppose to be top notch anyway. Cant wait till it goes final. I remember waiting for 6.2 to go final and this blows 6.2 out of the water.
