I dunno. AOL could certainly be doing better in the PR battle, but they're
holding their own (and then some) on the protocol war.

The question boils down to, I think, who do you trust more? I have no idea
what AOL's agenda is here (and perhaps it's a case of the grass being
greener), but I sleep more comfortably knowing that MS is failing to
embrace and extend the dominant IM protocols right now.
