RIP Windows Messenger! Or good riddance.http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-20222998
Microsoft is to close down its Windows Live Messenger in 2013 and is urging users to switch over to its Skype chat software..
Shame its such poor reporting....they are actually closing Skype and "rebranding windows messenger"
Basically skype is dropping the p2p architecture and is going to be using the old messenger architecture with MS servers sitting in the middle of all traffic......
I've been waiting for someone to announce a "new and improved" P2P chat application to counteract this very problem.
Quick someone put a call out to Kim Dotcom and get him working on it.
