Yahoo discontinues Vista-optimized IM program

I guess the percentage of people that are really using vista (as opposed to
theoretical licenses sold) is very small.
It would not merit having a separate client for so few people.

http://news.cnet.com/8301-13860_3-10...eadlinesArea.0

One of the first applications designed to run only on Windows Vista has been
discontinued.

Yahoo said on Friday that it has stopped development of Yahoo Messenger for
Vista, a Vista-specific version of its instant-messaging program.

The custom implementation of Yahoo Messenger was one of the earliest, most
mainstream, and highest profile programs to only run on Windows Vista.

"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."

Yahoo released a public preview version in December and issued a beta
version in March. The Internet company won't stop users who have already
downloaded the program from continuing to use it, but it won't be offering
any further updates.

"Moving forward we encourage Vista users to download our full-featured Yahoo
Messenger 9.0 client, which is compatible with XP and Vista," Karlsten said.

Yahoo also said it will continue to experiment with Windows Presentation
Foundation, the graphics layer that powers Windows Vista.

So? Vista is low priority it seems!
Face it, vista is being ignored by everyone... well not everyone.. there are
many stuck with it and pulling their hair from frustration.

Yes, only for those retards who can't figure out how to use Vista. Like
YOU, Ringmaster, and Alias. Three douche bag clowns in this forum.

You should endevour to associate with higher calibre people, it's not like you're
talking out your butt, it's more like diarrhoea through your mouth.

"Moving forward we encourage Vista users to download our full-featured Yahoo
Messenger 9.0 client, which is compatible with XP *and Vista*," Karlsten
said.

What part of "and Vista" do you not comprehend?

Just because *you* can't figure out Vista doesn't mean no one else can.
