....and what do you use it for? Any business applications?
I don't, there is no point in it. All the people I know use MSN. Well, at least in europe.
I use it, both on the AIM network and on my company Jabber server.
I personally don't really use anything but if I do it is adium that uses my hotmail account.
To talk to my east coast friends (who all have AIM).
Nope. I don't really use IMs, and Skype is a better choice for video conferencing because so many I know use Windows.
The only thing I'll use it for is file transfer. Adium still sucks at file transfers. Oh, and the once-a-year-just-to-test-it-out video chat.
I use it to talk to and share files with business associates who live in different states, and I also use it to communicate with friends.
Use it to talk to friends in the USA, my dad who is in Dubai (where I believe skype is banned) and friends in other parts of the UK.
Looking forward to the new version in Leopard, should be fun to put silly backgrounds on, but the photo sharing looks good.
I am always brought back to iChat because of the video chat capabilities. I'm a big fan of Adium, but iChat plus the Chax plugin (absolutely essential) make it my choice at the moment.
I have friends on AIM and Google Talk, so use it for those (I also use Microsoft Messenger for MSN).
Whoa! I didn't know you could use it for Google Talk!
I use adium
Nope. Adium for me I'm afraid. All of my contacts use MSN so I don't really have much choice.
Yes, I use it for AIM and Google Talk as well.
I find Adium X quite nice since I have an old ICQ account, an MSN account, a .Mac identity (from a 60 day .Mac trial) and a newer Google Talk account with some friends in each "network".
I'd love to, if it worked with MSN rather than skanky-ass AOL.
Apple need to ditch AOL IMHO.
I'd love to, but until they fix the crappy ICQ support, it's fairly useless to me. I'll admit that I _do_ occasionally use the Bonjour feature at work, but that's about it
Adium X here, thank you very much. I've got an original external iSight, but I never use it because nobody I know does video chatting. So that was basically $150 right down the drain.
I use iChat. Yet, it's usually without choosing the actual program. I have Adium and iChat right next to each other, and whichever I click first is what I use for the day. Unless I'm doing file transfers; I use iChat for that.
I use it to do multi-video conferencing with my mom (Taiwan) and sister (Philippines). It works great because both of them are on Macs too.
I sometimes use it to video chat with my PC-user older sister via AIM. Works fine.
I use Adium as well, except for video chats with my parents back home once a month or so. I have a hunch that I'll be using iChat a whole lot more after Friday though...
I got most of my friends and relatives on OS X now and as I use Macs at work, I use iChat both at work and at home!
I love it.
if anyone in Canada used AIM I would. Everyone here uses MSN
Not really. Think of it as more of an investment. That iSight is worth more now, even used, than the day you bought it. Sell it on eBay, or even here in the marketplace.
