I thought I had until October before I had to upgrade to their bloated new msn version and they just stopped me connecting until I upgraded...
It's so bloated that it sometimes makes mp3s skip, I have no idea how it's possible to make a freaking instant messaging program so slow.

Well i tried it on quite a few machines.

a duron 1000 at work running win2k has no problems.

My 2ghz work machine with 256ram has no problems

My home machine has no problems (well it is a dual 1.6 with a gig ram)

I've got a duron 900 but it's getting very long in the tooth and my hard drive's borked and I'm considering reinstalling windows because it's been playing up a lot (I'll go for 2k this time, 98se is driving me insane). But I'm just saying that I'm amazed how much bigger and slower this is compared to 4.6 for an app that should run in the background and not use up 20% of my ram.
