If you have an MSN account, you should have gotten this recently
We are retiring the existing Messenger service globally (except for mainland China where Messenger will continue to be available) and bringing the great features of Messenger and Skype together. Update to Skype and sign in using a Microsoft Account (same as your Messenger ID) and all your Messenger contacts will be at your fingertips. You’ll be able to instant message and video chat with them just like before, and also discover new ways of staying in touch with Skype on your mobile and tablet.

This is of course a result of Microsofts buyout of Skype. Microsoft always heeded the motto: “If you can’t beat em, buy em” and the aquisition of Skype will do well in their favor. Skype is a superior messenger service in many more ways than MSN would ever be.
However, this still marks a great end of an era. MSN was famous for being…well, MSN in all it’s horror. Like IE, it was the app that never succeeded but courageously just kept trying. Also, MSN was the messenger that many of us grew up on. I remember when MSN just a box that sent text messages and nothing more. That childhood is now going down with the famous app.
Also what’s going to happen to the KYM-Brony Brotherhood group on MSN? is that going to move to Skype or what?
Me? Well I already have Skype, easy
