Just upgraded my old dinosaur MSN Messenger to Live Messenger 2011. Probably it is a good thing too. Chat dialogue boxes are tabbed now, cutting down my number of windows per contact. Also I can share video links to my contact and automatically embeds it in the chat box. Nice!
A gripe for me is that I can’t minimise the Messenger into the taskbar anymore like it used to be under Windows 7 but that doesn’t mean it is the end of the world. There is always a workaround method. All you need to do is to run the Messenger in a campatibility mode as Vista (I chose Vista Service Pack 2) and voila, it minimises into the task bar!
