This is the MSN thread. So some good topics might be:

Is Skype/any other instant messager superior to MSN, or is it the other way around?

How long have you used MSN?

And whatever else you want to discuss. Also, if you want to post your e-mail address so people can add you I'll list it here.

This is more of a computer issue than a culture and/or media one, so I'mma move this thread to Computers & Technology.

Moving on up

I've used MSN since 2005. Skype is superior, however.

I heard Skype is better, but my mom won't let me download it so I'm pretty much forced to use MSN, as nobody on the face of the earth seems to use Yahoo Instant Messaging lol. I don't have a web cam or a device that lets your voice be heard online (and even if I did it'd be a cold day in Hell when I use them) so all I could use would be the IMing, which is essentially the exact same thing I do in MSN.

I've used MSN for abooouuuutttt... a year? I never downloaded anything so apparently I'm using a really outdated version and everyone else has a more updated version I don't know much about the whole thing lol.

I use both MSN and Skype. Both are two different services meant for two different things. However, I will say that Skype is indeed better when it comes to VOIP (voice over internet protocol) and videoconferencing than MSN, but IMO, MSN has more features than Skype when it comes to interacting with the person you are speaking with.

Anyways

I use fb/msn when I'm on MSN (because I'm coolios) but I have never really gotten around to using it because I always seem to forget about it :c

Personally I don't really have a preference for either one, if I can talk to mah friends I'm happyyyyyyy

If I had a laptop or a phone with Skype support (Or if Nintendon't would add it) then I'd be inclined to use Skype more so I could video chat with people. So I usually stick to using MSN because almost everyone I know is on MSN, before all the people I add that are on forums.

I've been using MSN since around 2002. I also have Skype but most of my friends utilize msn more so I use it over Skype.

I've been using MSN for a good few years now, since about 06/07ish. I've only been using Skype for about a year or so though. As for features Skype is far superior than MSN, but when it comes to instant messaging I think MSN is far better. The Skype messaging interface has always been very clunky to me and a lot of things that can distract you, like the multiple buttons to get you to try and call the other person. I'm not saying MSN doesn't do that, just skype does it more.

I used to be a strong AIM user but later I find that most of my friends both irl and online are switching back to msn because of the GUI. So I'm like...why not? This was back...two years ago? xD But yeah...I still use it now.

I use aMSN (MSN clone) it allows much more customization, I can use voiceclips and video on a mac as well. Even on a windows it is very nice. I like how it tabs by groups.. but you can even edit it to do custom tabs or no tabs.

I also use skype too, but will use MSN more for chatting and skype for calling.

Honeslty, I've had an MSN for ages. But I've almost never used it. I use to back when my old PC friends still came here, but since then, either we've lost contact, or I've added them on Facebook, which I use more often. Still, I do check every now and then, and am besieged by friend requests.

Mine: [email protected]

Yay for gmail as an MSN!


Oh, and one more then. AIM will always be superior to MSN imo. Hate me all you want, but that's the way I feel.

MSN is the only messenger I use every day. I use Skype fairly rarely, but it does get some use too.

My msn donger is: [email protected]

Please don't post in threads more than a month old. Next time I'd advise you edit your first post to update your contact details.

Locked.
