From 8th April MSN users are forced to use Skype
« on: March 02, 2013, 02:49:17 AM »
Got a mail from Messenger Team saying:
Tiden börjar rinna ut. Uppdatera från Messenger till Skype!‏
 Den 8 april är den första dagen som det blir nödvändigt att uppdatera till Skype.

Translation it means , from the 8th of April , your gunna have to use Skype, not MSN Messenger.
Me? I already changed to Skype and it´s fine since ive used it for a while.

Check your hotmail inbox for the mail.

So, how do you feel about this?

Well, I was already using both so x3  There's still like 1 person I need to get on skype before then though, but otherwise it's no big deal.

I'm more annoyed by the way that Microsoft is changing everything else, too.
Hotmail is migrating to Outlook Web App on a similar schedule to this, which is actually alright, but Microsoft isn't making any favors by giving me a lot to do all at once.

Besides, I'm still not sure if I want to use that bloated p-o-s called Skype. I have Skype enabled on Trillian anyway.
I guess all I can really say is it isn't exactly what I'd expect out of a $4.4M game

It doesn't even have mouth animations

What's wrong with Skype? I've not had any problems with it.

I haven't used Hotmail since the dawn of time, and I've been using Skype for a while (whether or not I'm actually online is debatable), and it works fine.  The latest version is better than its old clunky version with "log out" under "file" (who does that?), and the window is organized nicely.  Really, I have no problems with it.

By the way, I hated Messenger.  :P

Messenger was fine for me, I could always go to independent chat programs but I am not sure about Skype. I never used Skype. Will independet chat programs such aMSN still work?

I don't really hate Skype. (I only immsensely dislike it; there's a difference).

But people should have a choice.
Being forced to use ad-riddled bloatware that detects your microphone half the time if you're lucky is not choice.

I don't know what you're talking about.

I use Trillian and it doesn't have ads.

Nobody was talking to you. 8D

Seriously though, I'd use Trillian if all my family and friends didn't use Skype already.

Well as long as you can get in contact with everybody on one thing its not much of a big deal.

I'm surprised that MSN users were still around.
