Gaim. Easy, looks good, works good :)

mjjzf 12-31-2004 09:46 AM

Is there a Jabber application as such? I thought it was a protocol.

aMSN you insensitive clod!

speel 12-31-2004 01:36 PM

gaim all the way

dubkat 12-31-2004 02:23 PM

since you included xchat, which is an IRC client, where are the rest?
I suppose you chose to leave IRSSI off the list since it would blow the rest out of the water :)

Well I don't use IM as much as I used to but I will go with Gaim, as it does what I needed it to do.

XChat and Gaim in the same catagory? Oh dear, what to choose, what to choose.

Gaim's support for the MSN protocol is nothing compared to AMSN's. An example:

I added 10 people to my buddy list from my old work after I quit, so after 3 weeks of them not talking to me while I used Gaim, I decided to open my account in AMSN to see what was going on. As soon as AMSN opened, 10 windows popped up with people waiting for my permission to talk to me. The Gaim team needs to work on this a bit more.

There is an IRC client in this list, so where are Irssi, ERC (Emacs IRC Client), BitchX?

Also, Bitlbee is awesome... "IRC to other chat networks gateway", lets you use your IRC client for interacting with any chat networks supported by Gaim. (Uses Gaim code for the protocol support, but is an entirely separate program)

Gaim is the one I picked.
