messenger for vista? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, I just installed Vista Beta 2 and I was wondering, because in most cases Windows comes with MSN Messenger so in this case does it come with it or if not which one would correspond to Vista.

  • You'll want to get MSN messenger 8 which is also in the beta stage. In the earlier beta of vista an earlier beta of messenger was included. My personal opinion- Messnger 8 (or windows live! messenger as it also known) is the best version they have done so far. The sharing folders are fantastic.

  • I've switched to Windows Live Messenger Beta not just on Vista, but on all of my XP machines. In my opinion the interface is much cleaner and more customizable (for example, I can turn off all the tabs and extra stuff and have just a lightweight messenger client running - one that uses far fewer system resources than MSN Messenger 7.5 did).
