This hurts me on a very personal level. It really does. With me off at school and now my brother has left the nest as well, all my family and old friends from back home are on MSN. I have about 12 people I regularly catch up with on my list. I know there's no way I'll get them to install a jabber client. Maybe I can convert them to trillian, if it's still allowed on (maybe since they might be able to afford a license).
MS has seriously fucked a bunch of people here. Dirty play.
