Mostly because it reveals the fact that at the moment AIM is still alive and kicking. That’s unexpected to say the least. It’s probably a good time for it to be put out of its misery, though. AIM started out as the built-in chat app inside America Online’s desktop client. It took off (at least in the US) in…
