For those of you who were forced to change over to the inferior messenger product called Skype, here is a way to get Windows Live Messenger back, and it works absolutely great!

It says it will keep Live working for at least a year... but by then maybe Microsoft will come to their senses.

not sure if love / hate is what I would use, but I did like messenger better. I will have to give skype more of a chance to get used to before I use hate.

Very nice find though

If Skype had better longing and handled online messaging better, i.e. both people do not have to be online in order for a message to be sent, I would say it's a superior platform to MSN. That being said, there is only 1-2 people that I even talked to on MSN, and that is infrequently at best, versus my constant usage of Skype. Can't say I'm personally bummed over this as a result.

Someone fix Yahoo Messenger and I'll go back to it.

I did use Live for awhile, but never bothered reinstalling it since I don't have my own computer with internet access, I used it on my parents' computer since my brother also uses it. I only got Skype a few weeks ago in order to attend meetings with my team for Senior Project at DeVry, without even doing video meetings. I am not the best judge of social media and messaging services, because I only infrequently use them (I am on Facebook but rarely use it) and I am not even in the internet on consoles age yet (Halo 4 has convinced me to rectify that asap).

Yes, ICQ these days is amazing.

I left it for years after it was wrecked, but the new one is absolutely superb.

If you are looking for something for small groups for playing games with friends try

 

http://www.downloadc3.com/

 

its free and doesn't require a server.  Just login, create your own channel and let your friends know the channel name.  Its a lot less work than mumble, vent or TS3.
