And as RWW points out, only about 20 percent of the entire 300 million strong Windows Live Messenger user base are able to access the Facebook/WLM integration, making the numbers even more remarkable.

RWW also quotes Windows Live Director Dharmesh Mehta as saying that over 80% of new consumer computers shipped are pre-installed with Windows Live Essentials (including, of course, Windows Live Messenger), so we can expect lots more Windows Live Messenger users connecting to Facebook in the coming months.
