We are, of course, talking about MSN Messenger which is a client server instant messaging program similar to ICQ.
get over yourself...we're all impressed you know the back-end differences between programs that send text from one computer to another....but it's ***completely irrelevant***
Of course you are wrong; that was not the same
yes, they are...they are the "same" in every way that matters to this discussion...you're trolling by saying this, because those backend programming details are not relevant to a discussion about IM services being ended
the joy/wonder of instant messages were that they went *from any computer to any computer*
****that's what people have nostalgia for****
no one has nostalgia for MSN Messenger...maybe nostalgia thinking of how M$ tried to force you to use it systemically...sort of like sarcastic nostalgia for a horrible teacher in high school....sarcastic nostalgia
