Now that pidgin has improved a lot, it gets my vote over kopete.

Agreed. They are planning to open source the 'UI' only. Not the complete solution we would like, but a step in the right direction.

well skype sucks anyway, so it doesn't matter, because I doubt it will win. It's damn buggy and very insecure.

aMSN!!

Even over Windows or MacOSX

Quassel!!! How can you not have Quassel on the list?

huwnet 01-12-2010 04:18 AM

Pidgin for everything except IRC where I use X-Chat. I'm glad that audio/video has finally arrived in Pidgin. Hopefully a/v support for the remaining protocols will arrive this year

jeremy 01-12-2010 09:52 AM

Quassel has been added.

I would have expected to find Empathy here? I daresay that is the IM app that got the most exposure in 2009...

jeremy 01-12-2010 11:46 AM

Empathy has been added.

Replace centericq with centerim. Centerim is a fork of the first, which is no longer mantained.
