Microsoft to discontinue MSN for Mac users

Posted on Saturday, Mar 12 2005 @ 04:20 CET by Thomas De Maesschalck
Cnet was told that Microsoft will discontinue its MSN internet service to Macintosh users.
"Beginning May 31, Microsoft will make changes and no longer support the MSN for Mac OS X Internet Software client," the representative said. A Microsoft representative declined to say how many people subscribe to MSN for the Mac, but said it is "a small number."

Under a deal from years ago with Qwest, Microsoft is required to offer Internet access to Mac users. Therefore, customers will still be able to buy $22-a-month Internet access from Microsoft. However, the company will not offer any local software and customers will have to log on using the Mac's built-in Internet Connect dialer.
