Looks like Microsoft are finally doing something with their buy-out of Skype the other year: Microsoft shoots Windows Live Messenger, brings in Skype IM ? The Register
Obviously this is not a confirmed move by Microsoft, but I can see it making sense in the long term.Quote:
Microsoft is reported to be retiring its popular messaging client in favour of Skype.Long-time Microsoft watcher Tom Warren writes here that the Windows Live Messenger service is to be wound up in the coming months and folded into Skype. An announcement is expected possibly as soon as this week.
The Register contacted Microsoft about the move, but it remained unable to comment at time of publication.
