Pros Web cam is somewhat stable
Cons I just want to chat and not be bothered by popups and advertisements. This has alot of other stuff you dont really need if you just need the bacis of text messageing.
Summary Compaired to AIM and Yahoo Messenger, it crashes much more often and has more advertisements than others. I use gaim as my primary messenger and has been working great for me. I still prefere it over the new msn 7.
Pros absolutly posativly with out a doubt nothing
Cons everylittle thing from the name to the very last pixle of the box it has on ur screen
Summary where can I start messegeing is poor on all versions
u halfto pay for everything and on yahoo its all free, u can`t change ur status at times u can only sing in 60% of the time for w/e reason norton internet security found this program to b unsafe, u cant use it with a firewall anyways, everything is crap compared to yahoo messenger it always disconects it screws up it causes errors you cant ge to the download page for it anymore it adds crap to ur comp if ur not carefull this is by far worse than any other im service out there msn is no good periode
Pros Works seemlessly with current Hotmail accounts, smaller than many other IMs
Cons Doesn't work with other email accounts and is very commerical
Summary Although MSN is a very corporate company, the seemlessness between messenger and hotmail is a huge asset.
Pros MSN Messenger has links to MSN Hotmail
Cons bombards you with too much advertising
Summary MSN has consistently offered alternatives that are not as good and seem to be directed toward benefiting Microsoft rather than benefiting their users. The interface is unattractive. And it only directs you back to Microsoft's second-rate services. Microsoft is incomprehensible to me. They seem to be eternally resentful of their customers and convinced that they cannot win a fair fight in any arena despite all of their billions, which may be true. Microsoft is the most eternally pessimistic corporation I know of.
Pros nothing special
Cons service quite UNstable
