For those of you not keeping track of these things, here’s the lowdown: on the 22nd of July, the current year, Windows Live Messenger will celebrate its 10th anniversary. The development team behind the IM (instant messaging) client announced that with this occasion it wants to hear from you, from the Windows Live Messenger user on how the IM platform “enabled friendships, changed lives, or just brought a lot of fun to a quick chat with a good friend or family member.”

Until now two interesting Windows Live Messenger anniversary stories have been shared with the world. The first story came from Clem in Canada, who managed to mix up his Windows Live Messenger Windows and IM the girl he was trying to impress instead of a good friend (read the story here). The second story is a bot more romantic and comes from Cindy in China – she describes how Windows Live Messenger can be used to get your significant other to marry you (read all about it here).

The third story has now been brought into the public eye. It is the story of Lenin from Ecuador, and I’ll let you read it yourself:

Hi, this is Lenin, writing from Cuenca, Ecuador.

Technology has been one of my passions for my whole life and since Internet appeared I haven’t gone away from my computer. I spent hours in the IRC channels until someone had the genial idea of creating MSN Messenger (in those faraway times).

It was the best thing that could have happened to chats, in all chats and IRCs, people were typing: “Use the Messenger", and everyone was speaking of its big usefulness. After spending a week chatting with someone, it was: "Give me your 'Hotmail' so I can add you to mess".

And since that era, 1999, in all the cybercafés it was heard the nice wav sound: "new message" at every moment. Everyone was using it, times changed, years passed, there were new versions released with new features and in every computer it was essential to have Messenger.

And now, 10 years after, being called Windows Live Messenger and having the chance to change the sound for new messages or nudges, but I don’t do it because I’m used to that "toorooroon", it is part of my life. All my contacts are there, I’ve changed my Passport something like 5 times, but my buddies remain, all my life is there.
