Windows Live Ideas


Recommended Posts

Obviously this website ( http://ideas.live.com/ ) has been around in a while, and is only available to BETA testers, but has anyone tried logging in with their Hotmail / MSN address lately?

I've just tried mine, and I'm logged in meaning I can download any of the apps listed, most importantly Windows Live Messenger. I'm not sure if this is because I've had my MSN account for years now, or if I've signed up previously and forgotten about it but if anyones interested, check it out. You might be able to access it.

Anyway, this is from Wikipedia;


Windows Live Messenger is the next-generation MSN Messenger. It is part of Microsoft's new online service called Windows Live, and will include everything in MSN Messenger but boasts new ways to connect and share documents. Currently, the Windows Live Messenger 8 is only available to select beta testers.

You will need to a registered tester to actually use Windows Live messenger. You can dl it from the MS website though.
