Longtime fans of MSN Messenger rejoice: Youve got an all-new, fresh-out-of-beta descendant to start using as your new communications hub. Whether its text-messaging, voice calls, or video chats, the new client—Windows Live Messenger—mostly delivers. This beta ripened fairly quickly too; it was just a little over six weeks ago that we reported Windows Live Messengers public availability. Overall, I like it and find its interface straightforward, clean, and for the most part, intuitive; I think most longtime users will probably agree.
Windows Live Messenger Delivers
Review: There's a lot to like here, but those new to instant-messaging clients might find Windows Live Messenger's integration with Microsoft's grand plan overwhelming.
