The next generation of IM (instant messenger) clients

Yesterday I did an upgrade of my ubuntu linux box. I have seen there the pidgin messenger included.

 I like this messenger very much so I decided to give it also a try on my "bluescreen" Microsoft windows XP box. The first thing I did was download it to my data drive... I tried to run the exe but it didn't work... it took me 2 minutes to figure out how this error happens. It is because I did run it on my E: drive and not on my C: drive.

 So I downloaded the IM again on my desktop and tried the installer a second time. thistime it was succesfull.

I removed my MSN client because now I can even use my GMAIL account to do a Google talk with my buddies Cool.


Pidgin can work with:

  • AIM
  • Bonjour
  • Gadu-Gadu
  • Google Talk
  • Groupwise
  • ICQ
  • IRC
  • MSN
  • MySpaceIM
  • QQ
  • SILC
  • Sametime
  • XMPP
  • Yahoo!
  • Zephyr

Have fun.
