Default MSN is shutting down March 2013

Windows Live Messenger launched in 1999 as MSN Messenger, rivalling Yahoo Messenger and AOL's AIM, but the rise of Skype and Google Talk saw the market shares drop, resulting in Microsoft buying Skype for $8.5 billion last year.

The ageing chat service has been given its death knell, with all services except the Chinese one, shutting down by March 2013, with users prompted to switch to Skype instead. A tool for migrating contacts over will be made available.

'-' MSN is like my childhood. I preferred it over all others even the current new ones.
*does not take change very well*

I don't know when was the last time I used MSN, I'm one of the guilty ones who switched to Skype and Facebook lol.

Honestly, I don't think it will happen..Even if they do shut it down there must be some kind of download you can use to still have msn just like you can get around the "forced upgrade" by downloading an old version from filehippo. Maybe they will just stop updating msn and let people use it as is(not like their updates ever did it any good LOL).
I really hate skype's messenger, the only thing good about it is the voice chat but that's it. I grew up using msn and I couldn't stand not having it anymore.

Haven't really used MSN except to check secondary mails sent to that account. Everyone I have on MSN uses Skype since we prefer it. Group voice chats are nice too, especially when we were gaming.

Already merged my MSN account with Skype a week ago.

I like it. I don't see any problems with it, minus the lack of sharing photos and customizations.

Josh you need to teach me how to merge ;_; I honestly don't mind it that much since I've been neglecting it and using mostly just skype....I even dropped Yahoo Messenger too LOL.

Though I probably won't be effected by it.....I think I got the chinese version?

I always thought skype was just better than MSN. The messaging isn't really the same because of MSN's customize-able text and the individual chat windows and all. That isn't saying too much either lol. I won't be merging my accounts either because I don't really use MSN anyway. Not too big of a deal to see it go it's still the same thing.

I got used to skype already; however, I really miss customizing my name and all the pretty emotes. I'll miss that a lot. I also liked the cute little built-in winks and sounds that I didn't use on a daily basis but used as a funny thing occasionally with friends. I really liked being able to use my signatures as backgrounds since they were around that size and stuff, but...oh well.

Use Google Talk after all Messenger services cease to function, I really hate how you need to enable cookies on IE to sign in through Skype.

The reason as to why this is happening is simply because MS bought Skype a little while back, and notice more people are using Skype instead of Messenger. Pretty lame, but it is what it is.
