Microsoft, who will be releasing the WinLive wave4, had release yet another comparison chart. Comparing YM, GTalk and Skype... and Facebook?

But they forgot to compare,
-Android device, Mac, Linux Support

and i think there are misinfos & some considerations (like personalizations). Comments?

For a Instant messenger it doesn't actually mention sending messages. Maybe they should concentrate on that rather than millions of features you don't want that just slow you down?

Some of the "Features" are worded specifically to put a cross against competitors eg. "High-definition video chat" seems to be included to put a cross against Gmail Chat/Skype which allow video chat

Judging by their options they'd claim that the Web Messenger was Mac and Linux support and forget to mention that most of the features are not available.
