ya that is a good idea. but i use aim. there should be a program that will let you take ur ICQ, AIM, Yahoo!, or MSN s/n and talk to any other ICQ, AIM, Yahoo!, or MSN person ya know? like on this forum alot of people are msn messenger, and instead of having like 5 s/n's for all of the programs, just one program for all of them. and dont say trintion or w/e that program is with all three cuz u need 3 s/n's for it i think.

Should'nt this be in 'Communications / AIM BlueShadowz '?

Anyways yeah that looks good, but has'nt MSN just starting to get 7.5 (or something) out just now... MSN always seem to rush things i think, i mean they are giving a date as you said 2006 for 8.0..seems werid but yeah..

What do you expect its MSN..
Hopefully they have improved much much better with yet 'another' version.

I think so. Moved.

Anyway, MSN promises so many features in leaked betas etc, but few of them make it into the finished product. For example, we were promised proper, custom animated display pics for 7.0, it half-worked in the Beta, but we're at 7.5 and that still hasn't appeared, apart from those naff Flash animations some people put in somehow.

That does look like a big list of features, but will all of them appear? We'll have to wait and see.
