    Anyone got any ideas when the Yahoo Messenger integration will show up? Or
    is that going to be the final big surprise?

  3. That was a real fiasco... lol...I can remember the handshake to close the
    msn- yahoo deal.. Lol...

    I dont think it will happen soon... not in MSN Mess 8 live at least.

    IM network merger is something too idealistic to happen in the competitive
    nature of today
    unless one company buys the other like AOL who got ICQ.

    However, there is a protocol that merges all IM networks in to one.

    Its called Jabber...and its opensource

    see some clients here:

  5. How will that help? Public IM integration is handled by the a Live Communications Server
    federated license.

    we were told that it facilitated full integration with yahoo and AOL IM

  7. Hi,

    That's handled by the server, the Office Communicator client itself is nothing but a
    lightweight SIP client.

    first half of 2006 is the offical word from Yahoo and MSN. although i think
    Yahoo might bring it out sooner then Windows Live/ MSN
