Skins for Windows Live Messenger [UPDATED: 12/12/07]

Recommended Posts

Windows Live Messenger 8.0, 8.1, 8.5, and 9.0 ALPHA

Here we go again, skins for Windows Live Messenger are starting to appear, some are good, and some are, well, bad. However I've been searching the web for a while and I've found a decent list. Remember there are not as many skins now as skinning Messenger has become a lot more difficult, nevertheless there is a good selection you can choose from. Enjoy!

I'm using 8.5 and the majority of 8.1 skins work, I haven't had the chance to beta test them all. I'll let you know which ones work and which ones don't, I'll make a list. But Bluesky, Vista, and ev0 seem to all work :).
