.....I must be missing something. I can't find anywhere how you tell if your friends are online on their computer with the new messages system.

.....:confused::confused::confused:

Before messages, their names wouldn't be greyed out on the buddylist window, but now there is no buddylist window, so how can one tell? Am I just missing something?

That window is only available if you're using an AIM account, but not if you're only using your iMessages account.
My thoughts:
iMessage don't have statuses, so you won't have buddylist with iMessage account. Think about iMessage as an online-sms. You don't know the person status when you send an sms to him on mobile...
