    Just got my first Mac today... a 2GHz MBP. I love it. Really. I'm a convert. I have installed XP via Bootcamp, but I keep finding myself going back to OS X because it already does most things straight out the box. I'm really impressed.

    What's the best MSN Messenger compatible messenger? I've got Adium and Microsoft Messenger, but I'm wondering if there's one or two I've missed. Is there one that will allow me to use the built in iSight camera? That'd be awesome if there is.

    Also, what bittorrent client would you recommend? I've tried the UB version of Azureus (which I've used for a while in Windows), but it didn't seem very stable to start with. Perhaps I was doing something wrong.

    Thanks for any advice you can give.

    For the MSN iSight thing try aMSN yes the 'a' is the only difference in the name. As for Bittorrent "Transmission" is your friend. For P2P stuff try Acquisition, again the best one (IMO).

    www.versiontracker.com is your friend. Welcome to the world of Macintosh.
