    Does anyone feel that way? I love the interface and simplicty of iChat so on my leopard wish list there would be an MSN enabled iChat.

    As far as MSN goes, I think Microsoft has to be a part of that development. Correct me if I'm wrong.

    But you can use iChat with Windows AIM users.

    I feel ya, but in the meantime, I'm sure you're already aware of the following options.

    a.) The Jabber workaround which has drawbacks (text only, & is it safe?)

    b.) Adium can be made to look a lot like iChat.

    c.) Just suffer with Microsoft Messenger.

    I recommend Adium. I use it, and I love it.

    It still doesn't give you all the freatures an equal version of MSN would, but it works really well, and the interface is very clean.

    Personally i'd rather see msn compatable videochat being put into adium, although i read somewhere that the developers don't intend to do that anytime soon so it's unlikely :mad:

    Haha i missed that, what is up with that? ha. Yeah, i use ichat, but i also have ICQ, MSN, and Yahoo and so i use adium along with it. I prefer iChat but seeing as it lacks these qualities, adium is very useful.

    Sorry!! That was a massive mistake. (I was a bit distracted as I was working in KeyNote.)

    The next version of the Yahoo messenger will be completely MSN compatible. It's in Beta now. I don't know how well it works, but it exists. Here's hoping the next version of iChat is better with AOL though at least.
