RH 7.2 Instant messaging for Linux ?


I tried Licq and it was slower than molases. Ive heard Yahoo IM works pretty good on Linux, at least it does for me on Windows.

GAIM is the best that I've seen and used. Plus it works with most of the major IM's

yeah but jabber servers are pretty naff, and it's often impossible to get on to a number of services like icq. and GAIM supports jabber protocol anyway

Talking gaim works good

Ok, today i tried Gaim - it works ! Seems to only have the AIM protocol. I also want the others (Yahoo and MSN messenger), this is the koolest part - it is suppost to work with more than one protocol.
