Windows Live Messenger Ready for Prime Time
First major service in the Windows Live suite of Web apps to go live.
Windows Live Messenger, the next-generation version of Microsoft's instant messaging service for consumers, will be available for download in final form right after 9 p.m. PDT today.
The product will be posted as a free download, the Redmond, Washington, company said this afternoon.
This release is a milestone for Microsoft's Windows Live program. Windows Live Messenger is not the first Windows Live service to launch globally in final form, but it is the first core, major one to do so, said Brooke Richardson, MSN group product manager.
