Question MSN Chat Control?


I visited the MSN Chat website, they do not allow Linux users to connect to their server (haha, figures).
Could I just use a windows emulator and mIRC with Vincula 4.7.1?
Or will this not work in Linux considering that Vincula contains two backdoors, and it opens many ports....

I don't what are you exactly looking for. You mean a MSN client for Linux?

As far as i know there are no back doors in vincula 4.7.1
eXonyte said it him self (and he would know ,he is the creator of
vincula. his site ---> http://exonyte.dyndns.org/index.php
I would be interested in finding out how to connect to msn chat
using Xchat or bitchX though.

I've talked to a few..... well nevermind....

I think the backdoor are just bull.
Some MSN retards trying things?

I am want to try Wine, but the supposed 2.3 version for the 2.4 kernal is NOT Wine..... it's some other program for office files, and another emulator that you have to go through a bunch of sign-up junk for (and pay, i'm cheap and paranoid, i don't buy over the net).
