Being a user myself, i must say that...it's terrible. the previous build was better. ( in terms of UI)

i must say they are trying to save space, resulting in stuffed and small and ugly UI
this was realead 1st march > read here > Messenger team blog

UPDATE! screenies!

haha. to me, the first build had the looks (better than 7.5 in fact). altough this runs much faster, the UI is [...] one thing is good tough. The green MSN guy is being replaced by the old MSN guy again.

what's worse, you can't use messenger if you do not upgrade.

-MSN messenger is very important to me. of course microsoft will not make it good. and grey is really the most nice? i can't get used to it.

-hey ur MSN main window does not have ad's n search below?!

-and haha the new 3-D MSN green guy looks like one of the tokens in the game of chess.

-F.Y.I - i AM cool. i just tried to make that last post "catchy" but i see it ain't working out LOL. i am a weird guy...

huh? what talking you? as long as u r a tester invited by M$ then you will recive this ugly new messenger.

as a matter of fact, my classmate, who is not a tester, found a patch on the net that allowed him to sign in on WLM beta WITHOUT being invited. But he still got this ugly new version and is now moaning and groaning like all of us here @ Winmatrix.
