MSN Windows Live .NET Messenger Beta Plus XP Service IM Pro 2005

Ok, so Windows released a beta version of Windows Live Messenger. I just have one question. How does this relate with existing products? Namely, Windows Messenger, MSN Messenger, the Messenger Service and the .NET Messenger Service? I hear there is a new service too- the Live Messenger Service? So we have three instant messengers that each connect to a seperate service?

Are they trying to confuse their userbase? Because I think they are doing a good job. Here's an idea, albeit right field, but maybe, just maybe they could streamline the product and the service? One IM to connect to one service.

I have a headache.
