Gaim Vs Kopete

Hi all,

I would like to know which is the better IM
between Gaim and Kopete.
what are the key features of both?

Can I get the yahoo Messenger or MSN contact lists
in either Gaim or Kopete?

Thanks In Advance,

Kopete is highly integrated into KDE, while gaim is less DE dependent.

Can I get the yahoo Messenger or MSN contact lists
in either Gaim or Kopete?

They're both free - try them both and see which you prefer!

I heard that Kopete was adding MSN & yahoo webcam support, but I don't use it so can't say for sure. . .
