    Poll: What instant messenger do YOU use?


    Hey folks.

    Well, this should be a poll, however I've no idea of all the apps possible, so it'll be a posting poll!

    So yeah, what do you use?


    When I was in Windows, I always used Gaim. Mainly because of tabbed chats & IMs, also it had GTKSpell, and various other nice things. It also was fast, and looked nice.

    Just downloaded, and compiled it. Everything works, but I need to compile some SSL thing to get MSN working. Currently deciding whether to do it, upgrade Kopete or get something else.

    So, what do YOU use?

    I dont use any. The closest I get to live chat is IRC. Generally I find instant chat applications too distracting when im trying to work.

    i actually almost never use any, but when i do it is dMSN
    i've only used it on windows, but is should work on linux as well (i've been told)
    and the only reason i use it is when my collegues need to get in touch with me, they use msn...

    I use gaim connecting to AIM + ICQ and jabber...trying to convert everyone to jabber, though it is hard.

    Switch to jabber! It's open!

    I rarely use any kind of messenger or chat app. But, when I do, I'm not that pickey. Kopete or GAIM for IM and X-Chat for IRC.
    OH NOOOOO!!!!!! You did it the way I said?
