I am surprised that it didn't die out sooner since I haven't heard of a single soul using it in the last five years. Ever since Microsoft bought out Skype it has been irrelevant. Not many people even use their computers to video call anymore.
I've never used any instant messaging program. I have Skype on my computer, but I never use it. I don't have anyone to communicate with. Even if I did, I'd have this bandwidth cap bullshit restricting me.
To whom said skype is a resource hog, you should upgrade your system if you're worried about it. Windows live has been dying for the past few years. Most people would rather just use facebook <-- lol. Plus with booms with smart phones texting is more popular. You know its bad when you see a 60 year old man texting and driving.
I think it's time to re-install ICQ. Lets hope it still has that annoying "uh oh!" sound every time someone sends you a message. =)

Back to basics huh. Out of all IM services that've been made, it still has the best name!
I remember MSN being very hip around ten years ago. Everybody was always online all day long and I must've spend thousands of hours having (often lame) chat conversations with classmates, friends, family, etc.
Nowadays I couldn't care less about MSN though. I still got it installed on my laptop, but I always use Google chat if I really must speak with someone online.

Strange that alternative hasn't been mentioned earlier. Haven't used that either in a while, but I liked the simplicity. Also the text emoticons that seemlessly transformed into rotating GIFs. :)
I never used MSN. When I was younger I thought it was some old people thing, and everyone I knew that had it was computer dumb so I associated it with stupid people.
I never knew what it did, I just knew only stupid people had it.
To this day I have never used it, now it seems I never will.
I'm just a dreamer.

Also Skype has this terrible habit of only being able to send an offline message to someone if you're still online when s/he signs back in.
That's true. I honestly feel like we should do something special for the death of MSN. 1995-2013 is pretty long for a piece of communicational software that, let's face it, a lot of people actually still want to use.
I had some good times on MSN back in 04. I use Skype now and I'm fine with it.
I kinda wish people had more online etiquette though but I guess that's just me being idealistic. Ass holes acting like they don't see you're messages aggravates me more now than it used to back in the day.

I'd still use it if I still had anyone to talk to on there ._.
I thought MSN/Windows Live Messenger died a couple of years ago. Ever since they made it all ugly and less customizable

Where do you live that you still have a bandwidth cap?

That's kind of true. They also added a lot of stuff that made it easier for them to get information on you, and made logging in slower and such. This is why I stuck with the 2009 version and got Messenger Plus, which is a rather large addon that allows you to costumize things in a really neat way. I used it to have a second-by-second countdown to a certain event in my personal message, for example. (Albeit some tinkering with code was needed to make that happen properly.)
Haven't heard about MSN in years. I thought it died long ago.
Also, I see nothing wrong with skype. I log on, call or message my friend and that's that. Couldn't be easier.

I live in a rural area. The closest city is 5 miles away and its population is around 3000.
