Trillian dropped by Google
It seems Google have decided to quietly drop Trillian from Google Pack. Whilst no reason was given you have to imagine it was because it competed with Google Talk.
This begs the question as to why Trillian was included in the first place; something that always puzzled me. I'm guessing Google Pack was intended to be an independent application distribution platform — something that could be used to enable the equivelant of Windows Update, but for other software. This would kind of make sense. Though I have a sense I'm looking for sense amidst senselessness.
Either way, Trillian via Pack looks to have run headlong into internal competition. Google Pack will now be more of a "Google" pack than ever… and that's all.
