MSN Web Messenger works on Linux

Posted 12-21-2007 at 05:53 PM by Chargh

MSN (or Windows Live) offers a web based Messenger program. Here are its system specifications:

* A web browser: Microsoft Internet Explorer 5.0 or later, Netscape 7.1 or later, or Mozilla 1.6 or later, running in Microsoft Windows.
* An Internet connection (56 Kbps or faster recommended)
* A Microsoft® .NET Passport. If you have a hotmail.com or msn.com account, you already have a Passport.
* Popups enabled for this web site if you are using popup blocker software like the MSN Toolbar

Well, one of those things are wrong. On my Fedora 7 Linux computer running Mozilla Firefox 2.0.0.10, MSN Web Messenger works fine. Here is a picture:

However if you want MSN on Linux I suggest Pidgin or aMSN.
