Microsoft has now enabled ALL passport accounts to sign in without an invite.

Anyone can download and sign into the latest version (8.0.0566)

Be aware that MSN addons like Messenger Plus do not work with the new Windows Live Messenger Beta (yet).
So if you have addons like that, you will potentially lose some features by upgrading. (Its nice though)
