What is the all new AOL Desktop 11??

The all new AOL Desktop 11 is a total rewrite of the AOL Desktop application. We have been receiving feedback from our most dedicated users asking us to improve the product for the more modern windows operating systems and computers and we have listened. We are rewriting the entire AOL Desktop experience line by line in order to maintain that "easy to use" experience you are used to, but with less hangs, less crashes, less headaches.

Because this process will take time, we wanted to give you, our beta users, an opportunity to provide feedback on each functional area as we build them out. You will notice that there is some functionality that does NOT yet exist in the new AOL Desktop 11, don't worry, much of this functionality is coming soon.

This is your opportunity to test out the new product, let us know your thoughts, specifically around what we can do to improve the experience moving forward.
