Windows Live Messenger

livemessengerI’ve started beta testing Windows Live Messenger, the forthcoming new edition of Windows Messenger.

I’ve never been more than an occasional user of instant messaging programs because nobody I know uses them. In theory, I like the idea of instant messaging as a way to keep in regular touch with family members across the country. Once again, I wish I could get my extended family to try it.

I’m going to give Windows Live Messenger a try for at least the next month or so and see how things go. I use as my email address for instant messaging purposes if you want to give me a shout.

Once I’ve played around with it, I’ll post my thoughts about the features and improvements.
