I'm sad that now died because of facebook chat.... that is no doubt worse.

I loved it on windows.

WLM does have a useful feature, in that it supports the initiation of a Remote Assistance session - useful if you want to help out a friend or relative with something simple.

Very bloated software, I find pidgin to run much better and comes with more features like spell checking.
