Delete your browser cache. The old files are still loading.
For the record, it doesn't load the new one for me either.

Thanks guys but I have Bing as my homepage and when I click the MSN link at the top of the page it still brings me to the old one. The link provided did bring me to the new one, but I want the new one to show up when I click the link from Bing. Deleting the browser cache didn't work. Thanks

Well then they must be slowly releasing it or testing it on a select few, which would make sense. This is similar to how Google released the Gmail beta. When you visited Google.com in 2004, you would randomly receive a link underneath the search bar to sign up.

EDIT: Completely unrelated, sorry, but how many posts does it take until I can display my sig pic?

What is bothering me is that clicking the link on Bing was bringing me to the new version then I deleted my cookies and it has not done so since. Thanks

In response to your edit. I believe you need the rank of Skilled or higher. 100 rep essentially is all you need.

Alright, time to shine then. Back on track, any more conspiracy theories as to why only certain people can view it? Works for me btw.

Probably want to see how it flies with users and what they need to tweak before a world-wide launch.

It's showing up for some but not others. This is completely normal when it comes to these kinds of things. It's actually the more responsible and professional method used by big corporations. Microsoft has really been on a roll, taking community feedback into consideration before releasing their final products.
