hat did the trick. THANK YOU!
Now, why in the name of all that is holy would MS put the most recent
version in some obscure place yet put an older version on the default page?
I hope when I go to the store to buy Windows FX (or whatever Longhorn is
called), I am not told that if I want to buy off the shelf (aka,
conveniently), I can have XP, but I want the most current version, I have to
hunt down some relatively obscure location to buy the new version. Is 5.0
somehow deficient enough for MS to make it harder to get than the old
version? If that is the case, why is it a release rather than some tech
preview or being QA'ed? I'm just agast a bit because there is this huge
push to makes things user-friendly, but I cannot see how the default
Messenger page is not current. And to reinforce, here is a quote directly
from the page: "Need a different version of Windows Messenger? Click the
link below for the version you need." Now, what is the link below? Windows
Messenger for Microsoft Office Live Communications Server 2003 Nowhere on
that page is 5.0 ever mentioned.
And to anyone who can affect this, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE make it more clear
what the current version is. Relativity means jack squat without a point of
reference. "4.7" is mentioned at the bottom of the page, but it is not made
clear that the link is that version (if I go to grab the most current
version from the product's homepage, and you've got 4.7 and 5.0 floating
around, in my world, 5.0 is more current) So I go to the Messenger home
page and try to download the most current version, I would expect to get
*the most current version*
BTW: Please don't chalk this up to me being anti-MS. In fact, I am very
pro-MS (if I buy a piece of software, I will buy MS first, regardless of
features my experience is usually more stable and consistent). I am not too
happy with this whole fiasco because in my experience, MS is the most
user-friendly software (I don't "get" the MacOS paradigm as far as apps go),
and this thing has been anything but.
