Download Yahoo Messenger (Vista)
From, today onwards, Yahoo! has decided to discontinue their popular IM client, Yahoo Messenger for Vista. This doesn’t mean there won’t be any Yahoo! Messenger, Yahoo says it now focuses on keeping one client for all Windows.
Yahoo messenger for Vista was a custom IM client developed specifically for Windows Vista with graphical rich user interface. It offers the same set of features that other Windows version offers, and has no bugs as far as I know. The only feature missing is the webcam support for video calls, but that can be easily skipped.
According to the official Yahoo Messenger blog post,
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 is a sad news indeed, for all Yahoo! Messenger fans using it on Windows Vista. You can still continue to use it as it does not have an major bugs or security flaws. I searched my PC for a Yahoo Messenger for Vista setup file which I downloaded for a friend (Yes, I’m still a XP user!). VIsta users who want to use it can download from the link below.
Remember, Yahoo! will not be providing any support or updates for Yahoo! Messenger for Vista.
