In October 31st 2014, Microsoft will completely shut down MSN Messenger, its first and most popular instant messaging (IM) service.

Microsoft launched MSN Messenger in 1999 as a competitor to AOL Instant Messenger (AOL), and just one year later, instant messaging entered the corporate world, when it became a feature of Exchange 2000.

A lot has happened since then; with IM becoming just one component of today’s Microsoft’s unified communication solution: Microsoft Lync.

Check out the infographic below to see the evolution that has led to today’s Microsoft Lync.
