Why would I want to go back to MSN when everyone is gone over to Skype?

In2iti0n2791d ago

That makes no difference. They can still see you when you're online, and you can still see them and chat with them as usually. No difference there at all.

Just a usability preference that many people seem to have.

I believe those are the same people that don't want to change from Windows 7 to 8.

In2iti0n2791d ago

That makes sense. Some people don't like the change, no matter what.

Eventually, they will all have to transition to Skype anyway. WLM will be officially dead MArch next year.
So, why postpone the inevitable?

I just don't see the point trying to stay in the past. Change in inevitable these days. We aren't static anymore like in the past. It's not like Skype is even that bad.

This is something my old uncle will love.
I've noticed that only the older people have problems with these transitions to new and different software, and would love it if they could stay on the same version for as long as possible.

The only down side of skype is that you can't check your e-mail like you could with messenger.
