Installed the leaked build. The new Messenger and Mail are awesome. Can't wait for the Facebook support to arrive to Messenger. Loving the ribbon UI in Mail. Photo Gallery and Movie Maker have also been revamped. Well done the Windows Live team. I think IE9 development should be given to the Windows Live team.

I keep getting these error codes no matter what I do?
I've tried installing this Wave 4 BETA on three different Windows7 Ultimate 64bit systems now, but they all run into these errors?

I even tried to install it on a fresh Windows7 Ultimate 64bit install too see if that worked, but still the same errors?

Yes, so IE can be filled with advertisements.

The Zune-themed interface was nice at first, but it just makes everything bigger than it should be. I just don't understand why you'd use one IM program per service when you can be running a lightweight client such as Pidgin or Trillian, which not only support addons, but are a hell of a lot lower on resources.

I use Google Talk, Gmail and Google Wave. Could I talk to more of my contacts if I used this (or Trillian)?
