, will this be able to compete against DropBox/MobileMe/GoogleFS hacks?

Once you have that new window open look on the menu bar for the "send" option and select the "send IM" for Instant Messaging. Besides the screen changing to the MS/Bing news in the main view your contact list will be on the upper right side under your Live user name.

You'll see "FRIENDS" and then "online" and "Add" below that.

When going to open it I started trying to add contacts until seeing the indicator that they were being added again? Well there was no import option seen and that can be confusing to some when WLM is already installed.

The trick is to act just as if you were going to send a quick reply to a live contact to change the default screen the first time around and close it out. When going to start WL a second time you will see it open with the contacts on the right and news links on the left. The first time is the key however.

(besides don't you just love betas?! )

To illustrate how to do this easier I added a few screens to look over here. Once you have used the send IM option once that no longer appears however in the menu bar>Actions>Send menu.

When you look at the 3rd image just added to my previous post for showing to bring up the screens where the contacts are listed you can see my user name on the right side there. Of course that was installing over the regular WLM that had been in use since before the first beta release.

I'll have to ask someone who is a regular FB user who so far loves this release! I was in contact with him earlier before this was asked. ouch!

I could have asked him then while in a live chat since he's a regular external MS tester. He would know right off!

Good catch on the page there! Airbot At least we now know XP is ruled out.
