Ideas for Windows Live messenger in Win7

Ok lets hear them ... i think most of us find it somewhat annoying how messenger sits on the taskbar, and requires many clicks to get to convos ..

The idea i have is this ..

  1. Make it so that messenger will minimize to tray (I know vista compatibility mode can do this - but it should be standard)
  2. Give the option to allow msn windows to not combine on the taskbar
I think that's about it, that should make msn much more usable in Win7 ... What says you ?

I do use WLM in Vista compatibility mode because I cannot understand why it keeps displaying the tab with my account picture even if the program minimized, but aside from that it is just a matter of one or two more clicks, how can people be so lazy?

Trust me, it's not a matter of Lazy, be more about ease of use and productivity, 2 extra clicks per day x10000000 amount to allot of lost time...

I close Windows Live Messenger, when I'm not using it.
I am more upset about the ram usage Windows uses on absolutely nothing...

I hate Micro$oft. If it wasn't for Micro$oft's monopoly I used Arch Linux. Microsoft is a stupid company selling defect software. They are destroying every kind of freedom by using their power in the software industry.

They know how to make business and destroy competitors on the market.
But the have no idea how to make software.

Winblow$ isn't usable, stable nor secure. It's just a great example on today's fascism.

If the didn't have 90 percent of the market - I would be able to play games on Linux.
