Microsoft Communicator 2005 ???

Hello Guys,

Recently I have planned shifting compltly to Linux System from Windows.I have configured Evolution on Ubuntu Hardy Heron and its working fine with My Corporate Exchange Server( Thanks to Ubuntu Community!!).But One thing is always letting me switch to Windows is Microsoft Communicator 2005.Here all are using the communicator but I wonder how will I reach out to them through my Ubuntu Box.I heard about PIDGIN and tried configuring:
$sudo pidgin

It asked me connecting to Yahoo,Gmail etc ...Anyone who can suggest What steps I need to follow to setup the Communicator to work in my Box
