They're killing off Windows Live/MSN Messenger

In favour of Skype, of course. Actually, I've been using Skype just for even IM lately, and I find it a lot more tolerable (if not better) than that new 2011 version of Windows Live Messenger.

So, what do you think?

I have only 1 friend that I use MSN to talk to and I occasionally feel guilty when I realize I haven't logged in to it in a while and neglected to notice. Other than that, I don't think I'd miss it.
It's kind of sad they're getting rid of MSN...

I've never posted in the forums here before, and quickly went over the guidelines,so I really hope not breaking any by posting this;
This is a link to a petition to keep msn alive, in case anyone was interested.

Skype is about a thousand times better anyway. I didn't even know MSN still existed :lol:

its good its dieing. I dont use it anymore.
The MSN clients started to get progressively worse with every update the moment they introduced that awful "buzzer", or whatever the hell it was. The latest iteration of MSN was unbearable. I really want to know who had the brilliant idea to replace more than half of my contact list with advertisements and various social networking updates I didn't care about and didn't ask for. And then not giving me the option to turn it off. Or, hell, to give me the option to not have to install the latest version of MSN clients at all.

you'll love the Messenger app on Windows 8. It's well, barely useful AT ALL.
For as long as it's on Win8, I'm safe =P

It's about damn time. In my oh-so-modest-little opinion of course

Good riddance. If it has the word "windows" in its name it can't be anything good.
