Word around the campfire is that Microsoft will launch the new Windows Live Messenger today. Additionally, they are are also releasing Windows Live Mail, which means you can sign up for a @live.com account. Keep an eye on this site and this one if you are interested.
BTW, I big fat stole the messenger icon from Liveside. It’s a really good site about the Windows Live platform. As for the Netscape thing I talked about earlier, I haven’t gotten around to trying it out yet. It’s pretty dull truth be told. Hopefully, I’ll get around to it soon.
