Yeah, its basically what comes with Windows XP, and only has an update to do a few things, and I have no idea what the real use is...

MSN Messenger grew to be something much bigger, with all the advancements you expect to see in a great messenger program, so there is no point using that at all.

i used to love msn 5, because I had this special add on program for it that gave me thousands of extra things! such as "rubbish talker" - sent random messages of anything to a person you said. "echo" whatever they sent was instantly sent back by you. and hundreds of other neat little tools!

but then it wouldnt let me continue using msn 5 when the newer one came out. i had to update or it wouldnt sign in

in the words of oldversion.com - "newer is not always better"
