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.

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 hate, seeing it go away. Skype is neat and all, but it's such a resource hog. It's not even funny anymore.

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.
