No Yahoo interop when Messenger goes final

WLMessenger new icon.gifIt seems as though Windows Live Messenger users and Yahoo users will not be able to talk to one another immediately when WL Messenger goes final next week. Unfortunately this feature will still be carrying the "coming soon" branding so familiar with online services and products, despite having been in internal beta for a while now. While this may bring disappointment for some users, it will hopefully be the start of something bigger. It gives us another post too! Enjoy this World Cup weekend, but make sure you return here at the beginning of next week!
