"I would like to tell you about the universal synchronization of message history in IM clients. It should be mentioned that it is easy to do it but some people do not guess how it should be done. So if you need to do it, read this article.

A lot of us work not only at work but also at home. And some of them discuss not the work questions at work and at home. So there is a necessity to look through the message history of the contact but the correspondence was carried on the work (at home), and you are at home (at work).

If you want to have the history on yourself, you need to do several steps. I will explain it on DropBox..."

* Better spell-checking - Writer has significantly improved the quality of its spell-checking.
* Better integration with Office - Writer is much better at retaining all formatting when you copy and paste from Word and other Microsoft Office programs.

"Windows Live Messenger is a GUI centric application with much of its unique design breaking away from standard Windows API interfaces. The Messenger development team, to all their credit, have successfully implemented their own, image rich and unique approach to desktop interfaces. Although nothing extraordinary today, it was far more revolutionary several years ago. As revolution turned to evolution, so did Messenger's style. Never have I seen so many changes to a piece of software in such a short timeframe. So below is a screenshot timeline of MSN/ Windows Live Messenger GUI over the past five years (the years of which, I have personally witnessed)..."
