Microsoft’s Macintosh Business Unit on Wednesday released its first Universal application, designed to run natively on Intel and Power PC-based Macs.
Messenger for Mac 6.0
has added several new features including the ability for Messenger users to chat with Yahoo! buddies. Messenger users can also create custom emoticons and a personal display message, including “What I’m Listening To” — a feature similar to what Apple offers in iChat that allows buddies to see what a user is listening to on iTunes. For the business user, Microsoft is allowing IT managers to deploy Live Communications Server only, enabling easier IT management. Messenger for Mac 6.0 is available free from Microsoft’s Macintosh Web site.
