AIM for Windows sucks

Why is AOL Instant Messenger for Windows so crappy compared to the Macintosh version?

The Mac version is fully scriptable, has text-to-speech, has an option to automatically log your sessions, and has Buddy Alerts, which let you perform a custom action when a user logs in.

I'm sure that's not all, but it's more than enough.
