    Angry Messenger for Vista

    I just bought the wife a new laptop and it's running Vista.
    I have tried to download MSN Messenger so we can chat and use the webcam. "More to see the daughter while I'm away"
    But it seams messenger is not compatible with Vista

    Anyone know of any other software i can use to chat/webcam that they use with Vista and knows it works.

    They do it to make a differential between Vista and previous operating systems. Only Vista will run the new (and improved) such and such software...

    If you look back to even say Windows 98 just about the biggest improvement for most windows users is the preview of thumbnail pictures. Almost all other software existed in a similar form as far back as Windows 98. It feels to me as if as soon as computers get faster and more powerful they run more and more demanding software - the boot time remains about the same. Microsoft (superbly) convince everyone we need to update and the process continues.
