    "I like it, it's not bad"

    August 28, 2011  |   By texrocksify


    Facebook, call, vids, sports scores, latest news, all in one.


    Minor drain on resources, if you get an up to date computer and quit trying to run Windows that Grandpa used you might not have that poblem.


    Some of you just hate Microsoft, that's plain to see. I guess you think the messenger from hell, yahoo is better? Yahoo is a virus. So is Facebook but I'll take my chances. This is a good program. Some of you are just pissed off because Microsoft finally started to listen it's customers and now you need to find any reason you can to b****h about it. You have a million shortcuts on your desktop and quick start then blame Microsoft cause your computer is slow. The one I am on now is slow even with 4gb of ram but that's because it's a cheap piece of junk. You can't blame Microsoft because you bought a cheap piece of junk.

    Yes, let's assume that legitimate complaints don't exist and that no one who has used MSN for messaging purposes for years can possibly hate it now. Sounds like a great idea to me! Man, I sure love making baseless assumptions about people!
