About aMsn


I just want to have some feed back about amsn client. Some friends told me some good thing about this progs (like it's support files trafert very well). But since the program is given as an already compiled executable, I'm really suspicious. I saw few strange things happening on a box with this progs running (like an Xlocker starting as root for no reason while no root is logged).
Excuse my paranoia, but I really need to heard some people saying me it's a very good, safe msn client without any exploit/trojan in it before using it
Gaim is very good (better I think) but need few improvement (like files transfert and native language support for new version) so I try to find something else.

i was using amsn under RHL 7.3/RHL 8.0 and had no problems with it. just be sure that you get the binaries from a reliable source.
