Hi guys and gals,
like Kate in a recent topic I'm looking for a windows live program replacement due to lots and lots of glitches.
Apart from that MS has promissed to discontinue Windows Live Messenger somewhere in March, so I have not other choice it seems :(
Not that I'm particularly fond on WLM but I have tweaked it to perfection in combination with Messenger Plus!
One of the features I'll truly be missing is the option to place my contacts on the desktop, where I can see if they are online, offline, busy etc ánd instantly start a conversion without having to open WLM in the tray.
In the past I have also use Trillion, but I really missed the desktop function and the personalized sounds (I have different ones for different persons for log in and logoff, so I can hear in the kitchen who is coming online etc. Saves me extra walks to check if it is someone I'm waiting for ;)).
Apart from that I do NOT want anything google or webbased (yeah I know I'm picky but that is why I stuck to WLM even though I don't use any other Windows Live program because they are bulky, intrusive, irritating programs).
