My understanding is that Windows Messenger (in Windows XP) is merely the
next version of what is now currently called MSN Messenger, with more
integrated features of NetMeeting.

Subject: [JDEV] Windows XP and IM

There's been quite a bit of media coverage over the last several weeks on
the new Instant Messaging features of Windows XP and Exchange 2000.

Exchange 2000 will ship with an intranet MS Messenger server as an
part of the service platform, presumably this will include integration with
the GAL and interoperability with the internet MSN messenger.

Are there any details on the new IM protocols in XP?

XP is promising some very interesting IM features, fundamentally the same
sort of multimedia integration that was the focus of the AOL/Time-Warner
agreement- but Microsoft is under no such restrictions on their services.

On the subject of AOL, the subject of AIM interoperability is still in the
news, such as this article on CRMdaily today:
