Live Communications Server 2005 to link to AOL, MSN and Yahoo! IM

Microsoft, America Online, MSN and Yahoo! Announce Industry-First Connectivity to Enterprise Instant Messaging Users

Interesting announcement made yesterday: when LCS 2005 ships it will allow organisations to securely federate, and now (with the Connectivity Pack) to also connect to the three major public IM networks.

Great news - also makes sense given recent headlines.
