If you couldn't connect to MSN Messenger the past days, you weren't alone. A "significant" number of users were affected by an outage at the service.
I hate to take this out on Microsoft but of the four instant messaging networks I use (MSN, Yahoo, ICQ and AIM), MSN – to my knowledge - is the only one that gets affected by outages.
It gets all the more embarrassing if you realize that of that group, Microsoft is the only one developing its own software that can run the service. I just don't know if MSN actually does run on Windows.
After all it’s common knowledge that Hotmail service uses Unix after several failed attempts to switch to Windows.
