Experiencing a little quirkiness with the webcam chat when connecting to someone running the 2009 client (Lifecam VX-3000) . Webcam "effects" feature also hangs when attempting to open.
The msnmsgr.exe process continues to run after exiting.
Facebook and Myspace contacts not showing as online when they are, unless they are simultaneously logged into Live Messenger..
I really like the browser integration and the ability to combine various social accounts into a single place.
Once the bugs are knocked out, this will be a very worthy update to the Messenger client.

It's a start! Thumbs up!
Now if they would just follow this concept in the US.

Anonymity allows far too many idiots to exhibit huge Internet ca-hones, and too many unscrupulous spammers to create sham logins to spew advertising across any and all websites that allow posts.

Stay tuned for draconian DRM coming to Popcap Games in the VERY near future.

I agree, as an example, a real keyboard seems a better choice than a virtual keyboard for word processing.
I can type far faster and more accurate on a mechanical keyboard.

I can't speak for anyone except myself, but tablets are certainly not a fad in my home.
My personal needs and tastes are far better met by a touch-screen tablet device rather than a laptop.
I have a horrible time with touch-pads, they are too small for my arthritic hands to use, and I am also not a mouse fan, because in need a something stationary like a trackman to reduce wrist strain.
My tablet seems to fit the bill perfectly for me.
Great for reading ebooks, unless I am reading outdoors which I use my digital paper screen dedicated reader, plays enough entertaining games to provide distraction when desired, and fine for casual web browsing from bed or anyplace where the more portable device is very appealing.
Big enough to easily read, and yet small enough to toss most anywhere on the go.
My experience comparing my tablet against the various laptops, owned by those I know, indicate that they use up batteries far faster than my tablet.
The price of tablets currently is getting very affordable, especially when viewed against the price (adjusted for inflation) of laptops during the first years of production.
I remember them being quite an investment at that time, preventing me from justifying the expense while still raising children.
I am happily looking forward to the introduction of affordable color e-paper readers and tablets.
Then I can look at battery life in the neighborhood of current monochrome e-paper offerings, as well as being easily viewable outdoors or in bright light, which is very attractive for my use.
