Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Kopete, hopefully, maby, googletalk will join the large number of protocols it connects to
Kopete does support Google Talk since it just used the Jabber protocol. If you have a look around on the Google Talk website, you should find the details that you need to set it up as a Jabber client. Here is the Gaim page (the values that you type in will be identical on Kopete): http://www.google.com/support/talk/b...073&topic=1415
I onlly really use the MSN protocol. I've tried quite a few different programs, and found that most single-protocol clients perform much better than any multi-protocal ones. aMSN and Mercury seem OK, but KMess is works better than either of them, and integrates better with KDE.
gaim if i'm in windows, kopete if i'm in linux. gaim kind of sucks for features, but its more stable than msn messanger (big surprise there). my computer doesn't need any excuses to crash. it screws up often enough. (yes, in linux too... actually more in linux, because when it does, i don't know how to fix it ) if i had a hammer, i would have 'fixed' that a long time ago.

now honestly, what's so very special about gaim?
kopete has all the features, and so does sim...
and gaim doesn't even accept keyboard at some points and you have to use the mouse to click "ok" or something (and I've really tried more than is healthy) and that just drives me up the wall
