Windows Microsoft on Monday signed off on the Windows Vista SDK, or software development kit, which will enable developers to create applications for the next-generation Windows release. The SDK, complete with code samples, tools and documentation will be available via MSDN and distributed at next month's PDC conference in LA. In addition, Microsoft has finally released an updated version of Messenger:Mac, bringing it up to par with its Windows brother.

Please get your facts straight. Messenger:Mac 5 *does* support custom emoticons. It says so right there on the page.

It does not support winks and nudges; but it has another feature that more than makes up for that: the ability to connect to both a personal *and* corporate network, simultaniously, in a tabbed interface. Because of this, you can even have contacts from other IM networks!

The above feature means a lot more to ie. corporate users than stupid useless nudges and winks. "Up to par" does *not* nescesarily mean: equal to in every specific area.

Yes it does. With different features, the two versions are simply not comparable. In other words, it is not "up to par" with the other.

Please learn how to read. I said "no custom or animated emoticon sending support". See that little word called SENDING? Yes, i know you can VIEW but not SEND.

The fact is that msn 5 for mac sucks. If you want business IM, you should be using jabber instead.
