I came across an interesting rumor about the possible retirement of Windows Live Messenger and having Skype take over. If that is true, then Windows Live Messenger might be no more in a few months time.
I use both Windows Live Messenger and Skype, so it would be nice to have them consolidated into 1 account, 1 service. I’ve also tried Skype on Windows 8 and it’s fantastic.
If you haven’t tried Skype, then you should.
