    Being back on Nexopia has got me running down memory lane again. Anyone else secretly hope for an MSN revival next?

    MSN Messenger wasn't really programmed very well. Although it was the most effective application for computer to computer texting

    If I had to choose between still using MSN or texting/Snapchat etc I would go back to basics.
    I'm not sure why I feel that way because then I would be stuck sitting in front of a computer all day, but there was something great about logging on, checking who was online and having 10 different convo's going at once.

    This is true, but Snapchat isn't untouchable. Screenshots still happen.
    And back in the day it was all about cam2cam

    Snapchat records all images and many people have the moderator version on photo viewing sites such as porn or Google images. I disliked Snapchat not for the reason of the program itself, More so the people using it constantly and stupidly being unaware of that fact.

    Is MSN Messenger actually shut down, or does just nobody use it?

    MSN servers are gone. The users were migrated to Skype when Microsoft bought Skype.
    I can actually log into my Skype accounts using my MSN passport, as they started out as MSN accounts.

    This might be why I dislike Skype, it killed MSN chat. Truly the end of an era :(

    No, MSN chat was killed by the same thing that killed Yahoo chat; Illegal content and the "risk to youth" in unmoderated chat rooms.

    I don't know about MSN messenger not being fully available, Last year I downloaded a certain older version and the software worked. Yet the ability to retrieve any data or service was unavailable. Most likely people are still using it with their own connections through other sourced servers.

    the fact that you found an old installer, and that it installed successfully, and that it even opened and attempted to connect to anything is ONE THING... "most likely some people are still using it", is you your crazy fabrication...
