Two comments:
  1. Whoever votes Skype should have his account suspended (Not because it is proprietary but mostly because they don't give a f* about *nix users. 2 versions below..?)
  2. Where is Bitlbee there? I reserve my vote for it. If it is not to be added then I'll go with irssi (Bitlbee's little friend)

Skype. Google voice would be my second.

Skype saves me a fortune on phone calls and it works very good in linux.

I don't see any Linux client called "GoogleChat" and the native Google Talk client only runs on Windows.

Damn, my bad once again! I have to sleep a little more

I do use GoogleTalk under Linux (Audio/Video) not as a standalone client (Windows XP and later) but through Firefox / Chromium plugins which are actively developed and working quite fine to replace (stalled) Skype for Linux, at least.
