Ok my friend who recently moved to Texas just sent me a message letting me know he has an MSN Messenger account. I'm going to check that link derFunk posted as soon as I can dislodge my foot from my mouth.
What's so crappy about the Live/MSN Messenger service? It works quite well for the most part. The same can't be said for AOL/ICQ lately (it was downhill for ICQ ever since AOL bought them). I especially like the integration with Remote Assistance (you can say it is monopoly at its best ) where other methods to initiate a session involve more manual steps.
The Model M is not for the faint of heart. You either like them or hate them.
