Forgive me if this is old news. It appears the first bloggers started writing about it four days ago. It’s news to me, though. The long awaited breakdown of barriers between IM clients appears to have come and gone without much of a peep. The latest build of Yahoo Messenger and Windows Live Messenger (MSN) have been released and with them, the interoperabilty wall has fallen.
I’m not really a Yahoo or Windows Live Messenger user. I have accounts for both and used MSN much more in the past but for now, I’m a Skype man. Nonetheless, the fact that Yahoo Messenger and WLM both work together now is somewhat of a coup for interactive collaboration fans everywhere.
I have not really used the interoperability much so welcome feedback on the feature is encouraged in the comments.
