The story I hear is that MS started bundling MSN Messenger in WindowsME, 
set to launch at boot time by default, so anyone with a HotMail or MSN 
account who installs WindowsME automatically becomes an MSN Messenger 
user. This did wonders for their user base, just as it did for Internet 
Explorer's user base in the late '90s.

But I have only heard this by word of mouth; I'd also appreciate seeing 
a reference to it from some reputable source.
