    MSN and Yahoo. I find the VOIP features of Yahoo to be more stable and faster but most of my friends use MSN. Stopped using ICQ when it started taking 15 minutes to receive an 'instant' message! lol

    winders: trillian 3.1 for aim, yahoo, msn, and irc. used to use mirc, but trillian looks better, and i outgrew mirc scripts years ago.

    linux: kopete for aim, yahoo, and whatever. bitchx for irc.

    i had aim on my old phone, but it sort of sucked hard. don't mess with it mobile now.

    I use Aim. All my friends have it, and none of them have anything else.

    Just installed it, looks pretty good.
    It didn't import my group settings from ICQ or MSN though, which is a bit annoying.

    meh, i just msn, ive dabbled with icq aim and yahoo in the past all linked together using trillian but i found it annoyying that i only had icq aim and yahoo just so i could talk to 2 people on each account etc.

    now i just msn and e-mail the rest.

    I'm surprised the lot of you dont know that you can IM ICQ users through aim, whether ite be by their #, or via nickname. I have a habit of using msn for friends here/buisness, aim for friends abroad/buisness, yahoo for random stuff, forums for most of the above.

    Yea you can also use AIM to send Text Messages. In the screenname field you type +1 5555555555 (replace the 5's with the number) then in the message field you type a message.

    Then try trillian. Its so much better than AIM even if you only use it for that.
