I like the windows one. You can theme the shit out of it and get it all sleek like.

I tried it, you can tell it's new - not many features, etc. Sticking with Adium for now but will keep an eye on it.

Seriously, you're doing windows wrong apparently. I'm not against Macs, but I've also never had the problems and shit that you have. Fagatron :wub:
Admittedly, I ran Trillian back in 2000, on a 450MHz P2, with 128mb RAM, running Win98SE. Two Ton Titty Face :wub:

I guess I'm not a hardcore IM'er, but I don't see the point. I use AIM all day long just fine in one window on iChat, and XMPP windows (both chat room in individual) in other windows. Video/voice works great over XMPP. iChat works fine, and I don't have to install anything. Adium is nice too, but I don't need it.

This is why. I have IM up most of the day, to shoot the shit with people while I work/fuck around at home. It's not like I'm going to hop in an XMPP chat with 12 different people that I know from internet forums.

You really can't compare the two.

For one to one, how's it better than iChat though? What's it do? I'm being serious, I don't get why another client is necessary for that.

There's the reason right there for Trillian.
Adium can connect to those other services, just as Trillian. I guess I shouldn't knock Trillian before I try it again. It's just that, Adium does the job, I don't need to check it out :lol:
