I guess that's why it's called 'Beta'
I'm the type of person that leaves their machine running 24/7. So, the new MSN Messenger 8 Beta has been running for a while now..probably at least 48 hours or more. When I got a system notification area popup telling me my virtual memory was low, I opened Task Manager to look at the status of applications running, and sorted them by memory usage:
Yikes! I hope whatever does that gets worked out before it's released!
p.s. Speaking of Live Messenger 8 - I think I'm about ready to do what Russ Nemhauser did and just rollback to the previous release of MSN Messenger. It's that bad.
