I still keep using this over Adium because of the minor nice features it has. Also it wins aMSN in terms of Mac-looks (while I can't say this is the prettiest application made).

Personally, coming from a Windows background and using MSN Messenger since the very beginning, I've simply stuck with Microsoft Messenger naturally during my move to the Mac platform. I have tried Adium but I prefer Microsoft Messenger... for now anyway :)

Be nice to see more Windows Live Messenger features brought across though

Whilst Adium is much better, it doesn't personal messages, which whilst aren't essential, are good to have around. And yes, in the ideal world I would use Jabber, but I've realised 90% of my friends wouldn't know what Jabber was if it hit them in the face, so that option is pretty useless :(

I don't know why someone would use this over Adium. I also don't know why someone would use hotmail, when you can register any email through MSN messenger (you can chat with a gmail account for example).

useful for getting into your hotmail account quickly

Absolutely have to agree with zforrester there! :)

I hate MSN Messenger. I highly recommend Adium, Proteus or iChat + Jabber
