Best Instant Messangers?


I have been using Linux for a while now, and was wondering what people use for Messanging clients (Specificly one that supports AIM)
I know of only a few

Gaim
Kopete
AOL's linux version of AIM

I guess I would like peoples opinions of either those listed above and or other ones i havent heard of yet.

gaim- http://gaim.sourceforge.net

gaim supports msn, aim, yahoo etc. I love it!

Theres also nAIM but that is like a command line version, similar to IRC. There are some chat programs that come with KDE i think to.

The best unknown client:

I've never looked at Gaim or Kopete since I started using this program.

I failed to get both kopete and gaim working, but amsn worked first time...

By the way, it's messenger, not messanger.
