    Anyone know when we might get video chat options in MSN? (home edition)

    iChat is not much use for us UK peeps - hardly anyone uses AOL here.

    You can have your MSN contacts in iChat, but as of yet there's no video/audioconferencing there yet, either.

    I'd go with iChat until either Microsoft fixes its own broken software or Apple becomes compatible with Microsoft's broken software, whichever comes first.

    Well it took Microsoft how many years to release the inferior and crippled MSN 7 for Mac? I wouldn't expect the first option to happen in the near future. :rolleyes:

    How can I get my MSN contacts in iChat? It doesn't give me the option to sign in with an MSN account?

    A very messy fix, that I wouldn't recommend to anyone

    MS have said they are working on video but it's a work in progress still. As it has been for some time!
