I’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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
