Hello lounge people! I wanted to hear your thoughts on which Messaging program is better in your opinion. Be sure to state if you are using a Mac/apple computer or a windows. I have Windows and am using both, Msn for friends in Europe and Aim for friends here in the U.S. And I have to say MSN wins hands down. MSN pros: -being able to change nickname -Using a picture saved from your computer is quick and easy. You can choose the size of the picture. -Patches help in customization -Fast transfering of files through shared folders -Custom smilies/emoticons -Msn spaces with hotmail account -E-mail is easy to access -Custom animations -Messages that tell you when someone has signed off/on - List goes on... MSN cons: -Posibility of viruses -Occupies more space than Aim Aim pros: -Small file size -Can't really think of anything else that MSN doesn't have already Aim cons: -Non custom smilies -Crappy animations after use of a smiley -picture form your computer has to be a specific size -Doesn't tell you when someone has signed on except for sounds -Non intuitive settings -Same nickname, -Ads appear on top of contact list - List goes on.... So what do you think? there is arguable stuff here. correct me in things they I put wrong.
