    no webcam functionality in MSN Messenger :down:

    I know I can switch to XP on the intel macs, but I'd like to be able to just use the webcam feature in OS X...

    :hs:

    MSN on Mac sucked the big one. I switched to Adium after OT suggested it :love: No webcam from what I've experienced though. I don't want people looking at my face anyways :rofl:

    apparantly amsn has webcam and custom emoticon support. havent tried it yet but plan to.. some of its plugins look kinda handy too.

    good on microsoft for having a half-finished mac product (msn messenger) for years and years. :bash:

    I don't hate Apple for OS X, I hate MSN for not finishing their product

    I tried aMSN, but it just looks like shit. MSN Messenger interface > *, except for the fact that it doesn't support webcam :(

    and that's the only way I can see my girlfriend living in California while I'm in Chicago :hs:
