"worthless"

September 01, 2005  |  By DeusExMachina

 |  Version: MSN Messenger (Mac OS X) 5.0

Pros

Allows you to access the small number of individuals so sheltered or complacent that they do not have AIM or Y! accounts

Cons

Just another example of the MS Mac Business Unit dropping the ball. This release still lags so far behind the Windows version in terms of features that it is laughable. It is not as if there is anything particularly daunting about getting them to work for OSX, so one is left with little choice but to chalk it up to either laziness or blatant disregard for the mac community, which, to be honest is fine by me. MS software in general, including Office, is poorly written, poorly conceived, and poorly executed, and is to be avoided at all costs.

"Worthless"

May 25, 2006  |  By AFCSC

 |  Version: MSN Messenger (Mac OS X) 5.0

Pros

None! There are better programs out there!

Cons

The 4.0x version never worked right from the start but completely stopped working as soon as the 5.0 version was available. I downloaded the 5.0 version but the only file I received was labeled "Messenger". I trashed the 4.0 and the "Messenger" file and removed the Icon from the tool bar.

"Useless..."

May 21, 2006  |  By caladan1810

 |  Version: MSN Messenger (Mac OS X) 5.0

Pros

WOW we have display pics. (insert scarsm here)

Cons

No Audio Support like MSN Messenger 7.5 (WIN)

No Video Support like MSN Messenger 7.5 (WIN)

No VoIP Support.

untill we Mac users get the same level of programming as Windows users from Microsoft. It just goes to show they couldn't give a rats about mac users. They're to busy with the Windows Live Messenger Beta & Windows Live Mail Beta & Internet Explorer 7 Beta. Not to mention the Office 12 Beta. Geez will we get any level of programs like this in the near future??? One has to wonder...

"Solid Mac App"

March 23, 2006  |  By DMarolla

 |  Version: MSN Messenger (Mac OS X) 5.0

Pros

Lets face it, Mac would'nt allow a dodgy app to be the most popular instant messenger in the world. This is a solid app and runs like a charm. It may not have the features as the latest Messenger for PC, but who needs those immature elements. All in all, this is a great program for people who want to chat with their friends and loved ones.

Cons

No cons.

"It Sucks..."

March 14, 2006  |  By sacordoba

 |  Version: MSN Messenger (Mac OS X) 5.0

Pros

None.

Cons

You get disconnect every 10 minutes,

if you compare it with the windows version, it is a very poor version, doesn't support audio or video. Once again it's demostrate that Microsoft sucks as a company, I hope that iChat would support NetPassport soon.

"Bad Features, Not up to scratch at all."

January 13, 2006  |  By joe_the_bassist

 |  Version: MSN Messenger (Mac OS X) 5.0

Pros

The fact that you can use some basic features that work ok.

Cons

Microsoft should really be able to develop a decent version of MSN for mac, theres no comparison between this one and the windows one, its shocking that microsoft cant put in more effort than this. We need web cam support. As an alternative, just get Adium X its 10x better i say.

"major flaws one has to deal with"

January 02, 2006  |  By illkillbill

 |  Version: MSN Messenger (Mac OS X) 5.0

Pros

no extraordinary pros

Cons

it disconnects a lot. you can be typeing and thinking the other person is reading it when after 2 mins. it tells you that you got disconnected. you can't tell if you just got disconnected if the person takes a little time to type! i log off and back on again to be sure, and i have to copy and paste all the time what i've already written, which just drives me bunkers!

no audio, no webcam, don't we, mac users, deserve better than this? pretty ****** version, compared to the 7 for windows users. i only use it because i'm used to the interface of when i was still a windows user. not that i've found the light, this is the only thing i regret when i look back to my windows days.
