So unless you haven’t seen the light (and use a chat client such as Adium, for your Messenger chatting needs) quite yet, you may be interested to hear that Microsoft has released version 6.0.2 of it’s OS X chat client, Messenger. It’s nice that they’re keeping up (somewhat) with their OS X applications, but to me, this news is not showing me “the WOW” as they say.

It’s free, so there’s that. But really, I highly recommend you check out Adium for all your chat client needs.

  1. #Phil, that’s interesting. I’ve never had a problem with personal status messages? In fact, I rely on them for my business as I use MSN as a tool to interact with my clients – allowing me to provide them with interesting factoids when I’m away.

    Clients have told me that they enjoy it, so it must be working for me :)

  2. Ian: While Adium is nicer to use, it lacks several key features, most notably the Personal Status Messages. Whilst it’s possible to get these in Adium via a jabber gateway I find it to be a bit buggy, until Adium gets these I will keep finding myself moving back to the official client!

  3. #Saum, I use the MSN protocol exclusively but I still use Adium. It’s simply better than MS’s offering.

    Nick isn’t being “overbearing” because it runs multiple protocols, he’s pushing it because it’s great!
