“Microsoft has announced plans to shut down its Messenger service (formerly Windows Live Messenger/MSN Messenger) and move users to Skype from 15 March 2013.
The sad news came in the form of an official email from Microsoft.
It is believed that Messenger users residing in mainland China will be unaffected by this closure.”
Microsoft is urging Live customers to switch to Skype, as it acquired it for $8.5 billion. However, with the recent privacy concerns and bugs that have been found in Skype, Brosix Instant Messenger can be a great alternative for former MSN Messenger users.
Not only is Brosix more secure and encrypted, it also will soon offer the ability to also sign in to different instant messenger programs, including Live (which is transitioning to Skype), AIM, and more. Brosix has also NOT experienced any of the security issues and bugs that has plagued Skype in the recent months.
