    I just downloaded aim for linux from aim.com for free.
    What was meant there is not that it's free as in "no cost", but not free as in "open-source". The official AIM client for Linux is lacking a great many features since AOL hasn't updated it in a very long time. I wouldn't recommend it personally.
    I agree. Gaim and Kopete are more feature-complete than AOL's linux client and are compatible with AOL, MSN, Yahoo, etc.
    There are two major products that come out of Berkeley: LSD and UNIX. We don't believe this to be a coincidence.

    Jonathon Clark was working on it and supposetly got the file transfer working working. If you can find him you might be able to get a CVS version. Too bad gaim hasn't been updated in close to two months. Hopefully they'll put everything from the summer of code into it.
