Windows LIVE Messenger Totally Ripped Off AIM

Has anyone else here downloaded the new version of MSN Messenger, otherwise known as Windows LIVE Messenger? It has AIM-like sounds now, and all I can think of each time I hear it is RIP OFF! Wow...

Seriously, go see for yourself. It is very surprising that they would do that. Maybe they have some sort of agreement with AIM/AOL but I doubt it. The sounds are literally now immediately recognizable as AIM sounds, even though they sound a little different..

It doesn't suprise me. Microsoft will copy anything if they think that it will help their bottom line.
