It depends on what you want from it. One of 'instant messaging (IM), voice over Internet protocol (VoIP) and videoconferencing.'

I would use ekiga for VoIP/Videoconferencing or there are other alternatives like Wengophone, etc.

For instant messaging you can use pidgin, kopette, etc.

Search for more here:

Note that M$ 'Office Communicator uses a proprietary instant messaging protocol. It may not be usable with non-Microsoft instant messaging clients'
