WeeChat


WeeChat + BitlBee in a tmux session is my favorite chat setup so far. I switched from irssi to WeeChat primarily to get vertical splits and scripting in more languages than Perl.

Irssi provides vertical splits - or do you mean end result being vertical windows arranged left to right?

aMSN, as it seems to be the only messenger that supports webcams for MSN.

Why no weechat ?
As far as terminal IRC clients, it seems to be right up there with irssi at this point.

Last year I voted Pidgin, This year Empathy. Empathy I like better and it offers good FB Im support.
But when the Linux version of Digsby is ready, they'll get my vote.

oohhhh, :-\ I thought that it was only Desktop/Sever distributions
I'll vote for Ekiga/Gajim/Psi/Psi+ at the next time.


You noobs! you can use SIP clients as P2P-VoIP!
For example:
If your LAN IP is 192.168.1.3 than in order of someone else in the LAN network to call to you s/he needs to call to: sip:whatever_name_you_want@192.168.1.3
Same for WAN!
P2P-VoIP, the other side just need Ekiga or Linphone or other SIP client installed.
It is a decentralized VoIP!
Only 7 to Ekiga and 1 to Linphone, that's not good, at all.

At the SFLphone <http://sflphone.org/> (a new SIP/VoIP client for GNU/Linux) there's a blatant declaration of Peer to peer calls feature!

LQ, please, VoIP and Text are not the same, thus there should be a double option, one for Text Messages and one for VoIP.

Gajim is so much more better than Pidgin (I want to share it with you, no flame-war lol)
Gajim, eventually, is Pidgin (PyGTK Toolkit) with only a Jabber/XMPP protocol resolver and all of the other resolvers (AIM, FaceBookChat, ICQ, Identi.ca, IRC, MSN, Twitter, YIM and many more) are installed within the server and they are called Getaway/Transport Agents, so the server need to make updates to the needs to update its Libpurple, which Adium and Pidgin are using, very clever, eh?

When you are connected to ##slackware at irc.freenode.org > FreeNode sees the IP of the IRC-Transport > the IRC-Transport sees the IP of the server that your Jabber/XMPP account is installed at > and that server is the only one that can see your IP.

Gajim/Psi are the Jabber/XMPP clients that made FaceBookChat (only chat + SSL enabled!) and Twitter (fully working, only text) available when those two websites blocked between January 26th to 27th of this year 2011
See the full story here

Long live Jabber/XMPP.
Long live LQ.

http://xmpp.org/extensions/xep-0167.html

You can use VoIP with Gajim and Psi

Psi (PsiMedia is required):

And Mumble is an another VoIP client.
