Windows 7: Microsoft to kill the Messenger on March 15


09 Jan 2013   #11

Windows 7 Ult, Windows 8.1 Pro,
 
 

Skype shows 0 resources being used for me.

I remember when Msoft purchased Skype for 8.5 billion last May 2011, figured they would change over eventually. I received the email with the link for the upgrade this morning.

Ha... glad I uninstalled Messenger and replaced with Skype... I rarely used Messenger on the last year or so... O_O
Indeed, looks lightweight compared to WLM... I hope the keep Skype the same as it is now.

I was personally using it but, even though, I was connected, I was rarely chatting. But, the main reason why I used Messenger (2009) was because how useful it was regarding e-mail notifications. If I had a new e-mail coming in, a popup would appear and if I clicked it, it would open a new tab immediately in Firefox. If I missed that notification, there was the button in upper right corner showing a (1) so I would click on it and get to my new e-mail. That's the only thing I would miss it for.

As much as I like Messenger, I seldom use it. I have accounts on both and I very much prefer Skype so this news is good for me.

I used to use WLM, but I only used the Windows Messenger ID for my e-mails, however they seem to already have switched the Hotmail interface to the Outlook version.

How did you manage to keep it? Is it based upon browser version?

I really don't know how I was able to keep the old version. Sorry, I can't help.
