PS: The icon is AWFUL!

I'm quite disappointed that you cannot add your iMessages-linked phone number to the Messages application. When you receive an iMessage sent to your phone number, it goes only to your iPhone.

I guess I have to get in the habit of using Apple IDs for my on-phone conversations if I want all of my iMessages to go to my computer as well.

All my friends use Skype, Skype, Skype, Skype, Skype, Skype. Please make Messages App to support Skype protocol, Skype, Skype, Skype (It was said with robot voice :D)

Not much change. I thought it was weird that in Preferences, it looked almost EXACTLY the same as in iChat. The actual UI is a copy of the iPad Messages. I like the new icon and can't wait till OS X Mountain Lion comes to the App Store this Summer! Man, I wish I had a developer account!

It's beta and I get that but it won't even go online. The bigger issue though is that it replaces iChat when installed. So not only do I not get to use the nifty new software but it's taken away the previous working version. I like the new icon though.
