Yahoo! Messenger is a bloated piece of crap
There, I’ve said it. I had to boot into my wife’s Windows 7 machine today. While there, I thought “Hey, I should probably start Yahoo! Messenger, as long as I have to spend some time on this laptop.”
The screenshot below is exactly what the main YM window looked liked when I started it.

People need to know that there are alternatives out there, that Yahoo! Messenger has become a bloated piece of stinking crap that they don’t have to put up with. Even if you are tied to the Yahoo! protocol, there are still a lot of better clients that you can use. Do yourself a favor and try one today!
