This probably would be a nicer way, for them to ask you to change.

The Windows Live Messenger Team is committed to delivering a safe and secure instant messaging experience to its users. In order to do this, they are asking anyone who is still on Windows Live Messenger versions 8.1, 8.5 and 14.0 to upgrade to the newest version of Windows Live Messenger. This can be done today via download.live.com.
Over the course of the next few months, there will be a phased approach to get everyone updated to the latest Windows Live Messenger release.

From a different view it becomes hard for developers to keep supporting multiple versions. Not only that but users refusing to accept change and move to newer versions holds everything back.

This is why I am glad classic start menu is gone in 7 even if there is a way to bring it back the fact it is not there is good. I still see way to many people hanging on to the old menu and there is no reason for it.

They are frightened of change. Even if the change is better.
