    I came across an interesting utility the other day called Pidgin.

    http://www.pidgin.im/

    I used to use MSN Messenger with my kids but if another friend has say Yahoo or AOL then you have to have one of those too. I had been looking at Trillian when I came across this one, way simpler than Trillian and dead simple to set up. Sure simplifies things if you have friends on different programs.

    I use Pidgin at work, as we have our own Jabber server set up here for internal IMs, and I also login to my AIM and Yahoo accounts with it as well. Never really had a problem with it, although several of my coworkers have run into issues with updating it.

    At home, I just use Trillian. It's much more of a resource hog than Pidgin, but it works well enough for me.
