How close are we to a RISC OS MSN Messenger client?Published: 31st Oct 2001, 17:06:32 | Permalink | Printable
This close. drobe.co.uk gets a peek at something we've all been waiting for. (Updated 1/11/01)
What you are looking at is a screenshot from a working beta version of a MSN Messenger client for RISC OS. MSN Messenger is a popular chat client similar to ICQ that's used by many Windows users.
RISC OS users have for some time now been calling for a RISC OS version so they can talk to their Windows chums from their RISC OS machines.
drobe.co.uk learnt of the client's development after stumbling across some online beta testing work with the client's developer (who at this point wishes to remain anonymous) and beta tester Stephen Gadd. While development and testing continues, drobe.co.uk will keep you updated when the client is ready for release.
In an email from the client's developer, drobe.co.uk can release another screenshot for you to google at.
