I really don't think so... The icon clearly contains the logo of AOL Messenger, so they made some kind of deal with AOL I guess... I don't think it will support - say - ICQ or MSN...

It would be soooooooooooooooooo great if Trillian would become available for Mac. Trillian is a cool, all in one, Windows Messenger program... It's rather great.

Next to each contact is an AOL icon. Why would they do this if AOL is the only thing supported?

I have a few contacts on AIM and a huge load of MSN, (I know it is M$ but most of my friends use it) For me it would be nice that iChat supported MSN **but** I don't want apple to put M$ code direct into the operating system.

This started early

Damn, could you guys let the thing at least be released before you start speculating?!?!?!

People generally tend to go with whatever is on their computers, thats why many people use MSN these days...everyone I knew on iCQ has changed to MSN because people just stick with whats already there...I guess if Apple put iChat on, it'll just advance communication within the AIM/mac.com community but that will never be as large as M$ so maybe Apple should consider adding a few more protocols...perhaps Jabber and ICQ...
