Yahoo Messenger's Frosty Reception

Honestly, I thought their developers were long since deceased. But after eleven months, Yahoo managed to release some evidence of work on Messenger for Vista. I don't know why they're celebrating, as even they admit that it isn't feature complete. Nor beta-stable. In fact, as long as it took to develop makes me wonder about the viability of WPF as a UI language. Likewise the slowness in some areas. Though then again, it may just be Yahoo themselves. The Mac client is glacial, as are the frequency of updates, too. At any rate, after leaving us in the ice about its progress for 11 months, it is getting rather frosty receptions. In my case, relaunch left it frozen as a frosted pane of glass.
