    Is this just a UK thing, or does absolutely nobody use ichat? I have the application, and .mac account, however none of the people with macs i know have the .mac account. SO i have never been able to use this programme. Is it actually any good? Or am I not filling my potential as a human being not being able to use this ;)

    Hard to believe that none of your friends uses AIM ...

    If anyone you know uses AIM, you should be able to see them.

    i must say, apart from a couple of macrumors members, all of my contacts in ichat are in the states.

    we tend to use msn messenger a lot more here. ugh.

    Everyone I know uses MSN, I have no need for iChat. Apple need to poke their heads out of the U.S. window and realise that there's a big wide world out here and most of it uses MSN unfortunately.

    That's funny, I live in the states and pretty much everyone I know is on AIM, except for the three people I know in the UK... who are all on MSN, I wonder why didn't I notice that before...

    And the AOL stands for AMERICA Online. I'm pretty sure only America really uses it.
