gaim will probably win this one, but I must say that in 2004, the one that has seen the most improvements is kopete.

In Janurary 2004, I was using gaim. In december 2004, I was using kopete.

Both are great, but I really got to give this one for kopete because it's the award of 2004. for "lifetime achievement" gaim would probably win :P

I would have to say Kopete just because it was already packaged with my system, and its easy.

I voted Gaim. But it would be interesting to note the kind of response generated by Skype.

psi is a jabber client. It isn't able to connect to other networks or protocolls, only jabber works. But jabber can access icq ans so on through server-side transports.

I chose psi because i'm using it daily and it works just fine and is plattform independant (--> QT)
