I dont use IM, so I geuss the only choice for me is Xchat. Is there another poll for IRC's, or can you use Xchat for the same purpose as GAIM?

No one using centericq?????? Very capable text based utility. Works very well with several different protocols.
For the more gui orientated, Tik is a very nice app as well: relatively small footprint and useful.

Although Jabber is an old guy, but it helped us so much in the year 2004, since it's an open and stable protocol.

Gaim, as it seems to stay broken the shortest when MSN and Yahoo! play the "block the 'not us'" clients, co it snags the smilies from the network's server, and i can hit "enter" to send a message without configuring the keystroke, out of the box. maybe gaim-vv if i could get my webcam to work...

Just for the record, GnomeMeeting is not a messaging application, it's a VoIP and IP telephony application, and by far the best in the FOSS world.

I would have voted Gaim (where is gossip?), but I voted GnomeMeeting so at least it gets some votes in a category in which it should not be competing.

gaim is easier to be used, but it seems that there might be some congfiguration to deal with in order for me to use my webcam~~

aMSN!

Alrite fine GAIM is a multi-protocol client, but its features for each network are still very rudimentary. It would be my second choice as Kopete completes sucks.
