missed Gaijm: GTK2 jabber client

NomDeGuerre 01-02-2008 12:09 PM

ejabberd is jabber/xmpp server, not a client.

I'd like to see Gajim there too.

jeremy 01-02-2008 01:05 PM

Gajim has been added. It should be noted that a couple of the options are servers.

All of the IM I have tried for multiple networks are a case of foo sucks less.


Konversation however is 100% Great for IRC :-)

These days I only use Jabber/XMPP protocol and the client I use for it is Psi.

marciobarbalho 01-04-2008 11:06 AM

skype is very fine, but still missing skypecast, i vote for pidgin

mjjzf 01-04-2008 06:17 PM

I second Gajim. It is a very nice application - along with the not very well-known KF.

Kadu has come a long way, but gadu-gadu protocol is not very popular

Pidgn is good, however I think right this second it should stop focusing on the number of IM severs it can connect to and work on the features of the various IMs it already has. From what I have seen though, if you are a hard-core MSN user you should use aMSN.

anticapitalista 01-05-2008 05:38 PM

irssi is the one I use.

acidburned 01-05-2008 08:55 PM

i use xchat or amsn.

indienick 01-06-2008 01:21 AM

Pidgin! It's nice and simple.

However, I felt a bit torn when I saw Skype in the list, too. Only because I use both quite regularily, and they're both slick in their own ways.

Good Riddance 98 01-07-2008 12:56 PM

Yea, but Pidgin is Free Software and supports many IM types.

Kopete is well-integrated with the best desktop, and can message anyone.
