Yahoo, Microsoft link IM services

Yahoo, Microsoft link IM services | Tech News on ZDNet

        That is what I’d really like to see. The network of IM is finally converging. The giants are providing free form of services which are obviously redundant, in order to enjoy all the unique features each of them provide, customers have to install two to three similar software packages.

Afterall, technologies are built for the convenience of men. The companies can definitely continue to have their own software clients, but at least should share the same protocols that allow message interactions. The competition should lay on value added services.
