Yahoo Discontinues Yahoo Messenger for Vista

One of our favorite applications Yahoo Messenger for Vista has hit the , and it will not longer be available for download from Yahoo.


The Yahoo Messenger Blog posted earlier today:

As of today, Yahoo! Messenger for Vista will no longer be available for download from the Yahoo! Messenger website. We have discontinued stand-alone releases of the Yahoo! Messenger for Vista application in order to focus on delivering one Windows experience that is optimized for all Windows users.

This decision will help us increase efficiencies on our team and deliver one consistent, full-featured product for all of our Windows users.

This is definitely bad news, since Yahoo Messenger for Vista was a pretty slick application and except for the missing webcam support it was almost as good as the current Yahoo versions.

Though Yahoo has stopped the distribution of Yahoo Messenger for Vista, we have uploaded the latest version of the application. Download Yahoo Messenger for Vista full installer (11 MB).

What do you think about Yahoo’s decision to stop development and downloads of Yahoo Messenger for Vista?
