    iChat connects to the AIM network, so you can do AIM chats through iChat.

    MSN Messenger for Mac isn't video/audio capable. However I believe it is possible to do audio/video chats on the MSN network using third party apps (aMSN for one I think).

    I tested iSight under Bootcamp with MSN and it works. The audio required a separate step. It is very unintuitive. You first get the video working and then you do a audio connect separately. Typical Microsoft.
