Chris G. Williams Beware: I mix tech and personal interests here.
a while back I posted about a few minor difficulties and annoyances with Windows Live Messenger (BETA). You can of course read the original post if you care. Short version is... I didn't like it, so I uninstalled it.

Well... I'm happy to say, I reinstalled it recently and wow... definitely liking it a lot better. Good job guys! More features than Google Talk and nowhere near as annoying as the Yahoo and AOL chat clients. (OMG, don't get me started on those...)

I'm already using it more than Google Talk, and I never thought THAT would happen.

All I can ask is that you NEVER (seriously.. please... never) go the AOL and Yahoo route with all the extra fluff crap they pile on their IM clients. Annnnnd if you MUST add that stuff, at least have it turned off by default so I (and others) don't have to spend time (my most precious asset) hunting down all the various settings to turn it off when I first install it. Maybe you could just have an option in the setup... something like: "turn all the crap on by default" or "leave all the crap off by default."

Yeah... that'll work. ;)
