MSN Messenger + .NET 2.0
I just had this crazy idea: what if the next version of MSN Messenger would be written in .NET 2.0? Wouldn’t it be cool if MSN Messenger had:
- ClickOnce deployment
- Automatic updating, not visible to the user
- Plugins with extra functionality that is only downloaded when necessary (games, …)
I think it would definitely make .NET 2.0 very popular. And it would create a whole new market: MSN Messenger plugins (games and other applications that use the MSN Messenger platform).
