AIM as adware

AIM force-installing spyware

I was only slightly surprised to see information on this. I was very impressed that AIM had remained "free" all these years and that it reportedly had more features than AOL itself (source: roommate Matt). Now- not so impressed. Really, the article is all that is needed here... I make no other comments except that I have eradicated AIM from my machine and installed Trillian. Very sleek program, good options, reliable- it allows one to access Yahoo messenger, MSN messenger, and AIM and other servers- and it's a free download. It comes highly recommended... and while I'm at it, I should recommend Mozilla internet browser. Good Stuff.
