    Wow! Is that awesome or what? Separate windows to keep business and personal contacts separate! This is way ahead of its time!

    That's absolutely amazing! When can I download it and trash it? :rolleyes:

    You were being sarcastic I hope. ;)

    I don't see why they can't just make MSN Messenger at least 1/4 of what it is on Winblows. Seriously with all the extra uptime they get from the Macs they must use to program on, they should be leaps and bounds ahead of the Winblows version :D ;).I just watched a bunch of keynotes from back in the day where IE was the default browser and they kept talking about "First on a Mac and only on a Mac." Doesn't seem like they even put, well a 1/4 of the effort towards their Mac offerings anymore.

    Still an incredibly weak product: no video, no voice. None of the major functionality from the Windows version.

    Got to love those fake MSN conversations that are always in those kind of screenshots though.

    Brad @ Work Hi! Did you get that awesome presentation I e-mailed to you?

    Chad @ Work Yes! It was brilliant! Just printing it out now.

    Brad @ Work I think Polly might be interested in it - shall we invite her to this conversation and send it over MSN to her?

    Chad @ Work Great idea! We can find out if she is coming to the BBQ on Saturday, too!

    Polly @ Work has joined the conversation. Do not giver her your credit card details.

    Brad @ Work Hi Polly! Chad has an awesome PowerPoint presentation to send to you!

    Polly @ Work Hi guys! Fancy a squash rematch this afternoon? :D

    Lol at new features. This should be more of a "MSN 5.1.2" then a MSN 6.0

    Interesting that the Windows logo is prominently displayed.

    They've probably added a separate window to display the logo as well. :D

    Now we just need a culturally sensitive version taking place in the UK with a man named "Chaz" who's got to run off for a cricket match, and one named Gurinder who has to take his girls to footie practice. :D

    You mean like the "I love Office for Mac!" status message? Those have been around since 5.1, I believe. The only difference is that you can display the iTunes song in there, as you can with almost every other client.

    I noticed that offline messages work in Mercury now but I doubt they'll be implemented in this thing.
