Microsoft announced today on its web site that it plans to drop support for the Mac OS X client for MSN services. The company will stop supporting the Mac client, after May the 31st.
After May 31, 2005, customers will no longer access MSN service by using the MSN for Mac OS X Internet Software. Instead of accessing MSN services using the MSN for Mac OS X internet software, customers will access MSN services and features with their preferred browser and by setting up a My MSN page as a portal to their favorite online destinations.
If you are a current MSN subscriber and you use MSN for Mac Internet Software, you will maintain your current e-mail address and still have access to your e-mail, contacts, calendar, and most other MSN services through MSN Hotmail and your My MSN page. To create, customize or view your current My MSN page, go to my.msn.com.
Future updates to MSN services for customers on the Mac will be handled by the MSN team.
It continues here.
MacDailyNews Take: Does anyone care? If so, why? Really, we want to know. Mac OS X users who are also MSN subscribers, we’d love to hear from you.
