I'd rather wait until it's released officially.  Otherwise MSN Plus won't work with it. XD

I wouldnt know the extra options so far. If you find a screen-shot, then post it on here 8). MSN plus doesnt work at this stage. Some of my friends already have it and say they have found a few annoying bugs. :furious:

Well, I don't know much about it but I have heard that MSN Version 7.0 seriously mucks up certain computer systems. Thats what I have heard from my computer programming associates anyway!
When cities burn and armies turn,
and flee in disarray,
Cowards will cry 'tis best to fly
and fight another day.
But warriors know it in their marrow when they die and fall,
It is better to have fought and lost than not have fought at all.

Microsoft released the official Beta version a few days ago. The version did work on my computer :). Personally I would say this version SUX :-X.

what are the extra options with msn 7.0??
-A few new games that you can play
-you can sign-in as "Appear Offline"
-Conversation bumping
-Winks (not emotions)
-Handwriting in conversations

Disadvantages
-Your display pic changes every time u log in
-plus doesnt work yet
-the games don't work on my client  :-\
More to come
-Some how my installation files for 6.2 have been deleted

I would stick with 6.2 until the official version is released.

Sounds really sneaky -- I have no desire for MSN plus and will not install it

Check out how it changes your registry   :furious:

Yeah, I learned the hard way about the spyware (and didn't see the "just say no" choice).  It messed with my computer for about a week and a half before I finally restored my computer.  I wasn't a happy camper during that time.  I'd delete the spyware, and about four restarts later, it'd come back. >:(

I did...the second time I was going to download it after I restored my computer.  That's when I decided NOT to download it.
