If you want aMSN - go to amsn.sourceforge.net and download it.

And I agree, it is a great prog.

But then what would that mean to all the people ywho prefer GAIM, Kopete, Jabber, etc, etc?

The install is a piece of cake and I found it takes longer to download than install. But this is all, of course, just one man's opinion.

OMFG Jabber rulez, but i'd still use aMSN to connect to M$N (found problems with jabber agents leaving me logged on when i'm offline).

Tho i can see the orginal point it'd be nice to have aMSN come as part of the Mandrake package, it would also encourage newbies to get linux too, considering most newbies use default applications like MSN Messenger, Word, Excel, the rest of the M$ empire.

Tho a mate of mine has started using amsn on windows instead of MSN Messenger (which he claims is bloated ware, ahmen)
