the look and feel
The look and feel is just terrible. There is way too much going on. I would like to keep it simple just like with the current UI. If this beta doesnt change and goes to production I am definitely switching over to gmail

and that go's
for me too, i don't like it, and don't want it, we should have had the right to chose if we wanted it or not, it should have not been pushed on us like this,
That was my first thought. WAAAAAAAY too busy. Just a simple list of emails with who it's from, title of email and a brief glimpse of the body of the email. That's it. No weird circles or places for photos. Most emails do not come from friends and family. I'm not saving photos for randoms.
Agree. The entire left column, with buttons for calendar, address book, etc. is a waste of space, and can't be removed! Then you have the column for folders, then your emails, then a preview pane? Oh, and ads. This is the only e-mail service I've seen with ads! Is Microsoft desperate for money now? Bankruptcy looming? If not, why do you have ads in your e-mail? Much better to use Gmail to view Outlook e-mails. How messed up is that?
It appears to me that you haven't listened to us. The whole thing is a mess.
