I'd say Win7 still has it's System Tray, it just became home for "stuff you never need" - the important programmes are now "pinned" to the taskbar itself - and I must say I really love controlling MSN that way
... with my prior Plus! version it was, at least
Thanks to the person telling me that it's a bug in this release
I hope the next will fix it <3 I even quit the buddyscouts since I refused to give up on Messenger Plus!
