Counting down to the retirement of Windows Live Messenger

MSN Messenger, Windows Messenger, Windows Live Messenger. Whichever version you have used (or are still using) is going to be deactivated on 15/03/2013. Instead of developing and maintaining 2 different instant messaging tools, Microsoft has decided to consolidate and focus on Skype which they acquired.

I have stopped using Windows Live Messenger for a few years now. I liked the emoticons (and customer emoticons). I think I still have a backup copy of them somewhere. I have been using multiple protocol IM tools like Pidgin, Digsby and recently Trillian. I have always been using Skype.

Have you been using Windows Live Messenger? What would you miss most about it? What alternative IM tool will you switch to?
