    i'm about to get a new macbook. this will be my first intel mac and i'll be putting parrels on it because of the demo's i have seen i can just run windows programs inside mac. So i was wondering, if i wanted a more updated version of msn messenger, is it possible to have the windows version in my dock. So i can open it and it will run fine etc. ??? -thanks.

    Yes, but Adium is a lot better than MSN, and it will take a little while to start up (assuming Parallels is on 'Pause') two apps will have to start up...

    i'm not a big fan of adium but thats just me. i found it difficult to edit simple things (the sounds it makes when someone logs in)...i would appreciate if you could tell me how to do this :) thanks.

    In case you're asking how to put apps in the dock and not how to customize Adium... ;)
