Battle Of The IM’s

Today I’m having a look at most Instant Messengers that can handle the MSN protocol. I’m not very happy that I use this protocol but it’s the only one used in this part of the world. I’ll take a better look at 7 IM’s and rate them according to my biased opinion.

Note: all applications can be downloaded from the Ubuntu repositories, unless stated otherwise.

1. Pidgin

This one is installed by default in Ubuntu. It handles a whole range of protocols, but I’m only interested in the MSN protocol.
