Take a look at this screenshot:
- left: aMSN, latest svn-version
- middle: Windows Live Messenger
- right: Miranda messenger
I deliberately sized the screenshots down to 60% of original to show you the differences.
I think we can all agree that aMSN is WAY to bloated en very hard to read the nicknames and such.
Miranda IM is a little bit to simple (but then again, it is multiprotocol).
And yes, I know that aMSN-svn is not final yet. And yes, I know I can edit the skin myself.
But please please please, consider the above screenshot when making it final...
Does aMSN really want it to be that ugly and cluttered and bloated :S ?
I am not saying that you should copy the looks&feel of program X, but please see that the current svn-version looks like ****
In Linux, there is no alternative for using msn, so aMSN is the 'best' choice there.
But when I'm in Windows, I 'd rather use Miranda than aMSN because aMSN makes me sick to look at.
Once again: I love aMSN (you know that), and I know the svn is just 'playing around', but please take a serious and critical look at this issue...
