Hmm, could someone add Psi to the list and erase my vote? I voted for 'Jabber' (which is indeed a protocol and not an application) for the lack of a better option :\

At the request of the Jabber Software Foundation, "Jabber" has been removed as an option. I have added Psi (and moved your vote BartVB).

Gaim doesn't work with my AOL account (won't authenticate). I have to actually use AOL's aim for linux, which is not on the poll. If anybody can verify that the other apps work with an actual AOL screenname feel free to pm me. (If you just want to dis AOL, don't bother. It's the only email address I have that's "permanent".)
