Comments from those that selected Windows Live Messenger as one of their Top Tools

“I love how discrete this can be. As a means of staying in touch with friends, colleagues, technical authorities and peers in an informal but immediate way there’s nothing better.” Paul Coyne
“Still my favourite way to communicate, especially with my developers in Kiev, as well as family and friends. Fast, free and 100% reliable.” Mike Alcock
“useful but some over use it and over state its importance”  Tom Winterstein
