    Ms office users -- Note Windows Live Messenger is closing Mar 2013

    Hi there
    I've posted on the Ms Office section in the W7 Forum info that Windows Live Messenger is closing in Mar 2013 and being replaced by SKYPE (which Ms bought sometime in 2011.

    I know a lot of Ms office users use Live messenger so prepare for the switch. Ms Lync is fine if you have a Lync server otherwise SKYPE isn't too bad.

    Hi Jimbo45, I noticed the article on the BBC Home page while looking for UK News - you may have noticed that BBC shipped almost all their staff to USA to report on the election and they call that news (?)
    However back to the point. Having read the article I then via Skype downloaded the Metro UI Tile for Skype and opened an account and it did as stated and imported my Messenger contacts.
    I've yet to link-up with anyone and hopefully that will go as well as the merge.
