Yahoo! kills Yahoo! Messenger for Windows Vista

The innovative version of Yahoo!’s Messenger for Vista has been discontinued according to the Company. A state sent to CNET notes:

Quote: ‘Yahoo has made the strategic decision to discontinue external releases of the stand-alone Yahoo Messenger for Vista client and focus on delivering one Windows experience that is optimized for Windows users today," Yahoo’s Terrell Karlsten said in a statement to CNET News. "This decision will help Yahoo increase efficiencies and deliver one consistent, full-featured solution for Windows users–whether they are using XP or Vista."

I only used this program a couple times on a friends Windows Vista laptop, it looked greate but I didn’t see the key differentiator or uniqueness of it except for its semi-dark transparent interface and big bold profile pictures for contacts. The first test release didn’t even work on Windows Vista 64-bit, so from early on it was pretty much a disaster. I do hope for Windows 7 to feature more innovative programs that support the Windows Presentation Foundation (formerly Avalon) with new apps. The Windows Live suite is looking like a likely candidate.
