Question MSN Messenger for Linux


Hey all

My first post - woohoo! Now that Micro$oft have locked down the MSN network, gaim and kopete can't sign on to msn messenger any more .

Does anyone know of a good linux client for msn messenger that still works?

aMSN seems to be the obvious choice.

Read the note in red at the top of the page.

Have never tried either of them, yapp. To be honest, it's only very recently that I've tried aMSN - really when I switched to dual booting XP and Linux. But I like it. The joy of Linux for me is that when you say "do you know of a program to do X?" 15 people will give 15 answers and you don't end up having only one choice.

Yay Linux Users!
