I must say I have hardly used good old msn messenger at all in the last year, but I have now made the move to Skype completely. De-activated my live messenger from starting up on PC boot. Must say that since two years I have been using Skype more and more and it felt like a natural next step to integrate all the services. Pretty weird actually as for the last 15-20 years msn messenger has been like an institute. Have you made the switch already?
