Microsoft and Skype to axe world’s most popular IM client early 2013 • The Register

The software giant’s Skype business has blogged Windows Live Messenger will be “retired” in the first quarter of 2013, except in mainland China.

Skype said it will work with Windows Live Messenger users during the next few months to help with the transition and “offer information and help along the way”.
