So is it any better? Is it finally on par with the Windows MSN messenger?
Good to see Microsoft working along, slowly.
Apparently it should have voice chat and video chat?
I really wonder why its taking this long, do they have lack of resources?
So it does:
(Had to reset to the default toolbar to reveal those option)
On the side that defends them slightly, when MS does put out a new Mac product, they tend to spend a lot of effort in making it look and feel like a Mac application, vs. the approach Apple takes, where they essentially got a lot of their APIs running in Windows and can compile and offer the Windows versions of their products (iTunes, Safari, and QT) simultaneously or nearly so, but make no effort at all to make them look or act like Windows programs.
On the less defensive side, MS also have a lack of caring.
I would be curious to hear about how the video chat is working? Is it a full AV chatting modality, or is it the old webcam video+text without audio?
Damned if I know.
I've got a Mac mini, no cam no mic.
Seems nice. Looking foward a stable version.
well....seeing as though microsoft cant even get the current MSN right, i highly doubt that this one for mac will be even good at all...if not pathetic.
im just waiting till Adium gets video/audio chat up for both aim and msn messenger in the future soon. so i can talk with the family and friends far far away
What A Waste Of 14mb!
ok.. msn is a massive waste..
just downloaded it,
its a slow as it ever was in the previous versions
it uses 100% CPU usage no matter what i do
+ heaps more.
haha... crashed as soon as I opened an MSN window.
Also appears to be Intel only. Or Leopard only. Or both.
Which is why its called beta...
and primary reason I don't use beta applications much, specially from MS.
Don't get smart... I understand, and did I complain? No... I just pointed something out.
i have used many a beta applications before. adium was in beta mode for years!!! worked perfectly for me. i use this and BAM!! worst thing ever
Well... It didn't crashed for me at least.... It was using alot of CPU, but I was able to use the camera without problem and talk with friends...
Links been used up, otherwise i would give this a go.
I Use MSN for Mac, and adding some of the needed features would be good, and i hate aMSN and Adium, they dont feel right.
Could you host the file up on dropbox please? File limit has been reached for downloading from Rapidshare.
Another fresh new link would be nice for the rest of us. FINALLY MICROSOFT:MAC ARE WORKING AGAIN!
As much as this leaked beta is being discussed all over the internet, please don't be posting links to locations for it... I'm watching you.
to be honest, it's not like a quick google won't find it, links need never be posted as google is so good at it's job.
EDIT: It appears there's some kind of language bug that I've got, everything displays like this:
Could be Safari 4? No amounts of restarts has fixed it.
I've heard the official public beta will be out on Monday
That's some 1337 h4<xx you got goin on there.
