Windows Live Messenger

Microsoft has finally released Windows Live Messenger, available at http://get.live.com/messenger/overview, one of the first of more than 20 new Windows Live services to launch globally over the course of the year. I\'m glad it's finally lost BETA from its name. The release date of Messenger Plus! Live will be officially announced tomorrow - Patchou says the software is completely finished, but the translations and website are still being worked on. It looks like we might eventually be able to get email addresses at live.com and windowslive.com domains.

For those wondering what will happen to MSN Messenger, it will live on "for people using operating systems older than Windows XP (on which Windows Live Messenger is not supported)". Bear in mind that 98 and Me are no longer officially supported (or at least as of next month), so that only leaves Windows 2000, which ended mainstream support a year ago, and was never meant to be an operating system used at home (although I rush out and buy the student pack so I could run Windows 2000 Pro, the first Microsoft OS that I really liked). So I can\'t see MSN 7.5 lasting much longer.
