GAIM for the fluffy windows stuff..

*i said fluffy*.. does that mean it gets a 'fluffer'?
fluffers hold a -very- important position.. if you know what i mean.

sorry, off topic.

and BITCHX for IRC

I think irc and messengers should be placed seperately.

Anyway, I would vote xchat because it's the only client that support python scripts which I use to filter the messages.

Jabber is a protocol ?!

I don't know if anyone already mentioned, but Jabber is a protocol, not an application. Right now I can't choose between Kopete or Jabber.

Gaim is all right, but I think it is slightly too fat.
It's a pity the Trillian team hasn't the foresight to write a Linux port.

Well, it was a hard fight between xchat and GAIM, becuase they are largely different, yet equally as charming. xchat won out.

I really like aMSN, but I've got to vote skype because it has really taken off and has had so many downloads
