    Skype will work, you could use iChat (through AIM) to an AIM user on windows too.

    Skype or Yahoo Messenger, both work great, until tomorrow when iChat for Windows is released.

    the chances probably are slim to none. :cool:

    Skype is the BEST option, it guarantee the functions cross-platform, windows, linuxs, osx. Indeed the best you can ask for.

    I've been searching for mac voice app that can interact with Windows MSN/Yahoo but haven't found one. I moved to mac recently but all my friends and contacts haven't so its not that easy to ask everyone to install Skype just because I made the switch... There really should be some app that can easily connect to MSN/Yahoo Messenger. Tried with jabber account via iChat but no success...

    Bootcamp with Windows is the best alternative :D

    I hope Adium 2 will save the day.
