Stop the turning off of Windows Live Messenger

Microsoft has announced it intends to "retire" its instant message chat tool and replace it with Skype's messaging tool.
The news comes 18 months after the software giant announced it was paying $8.5bn (£5.3bn) for the communications software developer.
Microsoft said Windows Live Messenger (WLM) would be turned off by March 2013 worldwide, with the exception of China.
It reflects the firm's determination to focus its efforts on Skype.
I love Windows Live Messenger, it's important to me because it let's me express myself more than Skype does. But most importantly, it let's me keep in touch with my friends and family. Some computers can't even run skype. My last computer was so bad that I couldn't open it without it crashing my computer. How am I supposed to keep in touch with my friends and family if I can't use it? I think Microsoft should just keep with it, and leave it alone. You can't serve us for years, then take something important away from us. Microsoft makes well enough money to keep Msn going, so making millions of people lose out on is it pointless. And what about capped internet? People who can only use a certain amount of internet a month because of the data cap? Skype kills data like crazy, and will use your internet up within half the time, where Windows Live was easy on it.

Please, just keep Msn going for the people who DON'T have thousand dollar computers, or who just don't prefer skype. It means a lot.
