True, but I'm always interested in the other programs people use, I dunno, I just like seeing all the available options. If for some reason this thread is excessively stupid, just delete it, I guess.if you read just about any thread here on instant messaging i'd say that about 80% of the users here who use im, use Adium.
that includes me.
You can show who you're listening to. Its in your status options. Do you not have the newest Adium?I use it. I still wish that they had Web cam support and "... is listening to "this by that."" I know there's a way to make it so it shows what iTunes song your playing with some code, but i want it to look like it does for people using MSN.
The iTunes thing does work for AIM, but not MSN. Hopefully the next major release that it, once it does, then Adium will be perfect.
Yes it's there, but it doesn't allow you to show it as it does in MSN in Windows.You can show who you're listening to. Its in your status options. Do you not have the newest Adium?
I think the issue is that Windows Live has several different kinds of status messages -- the alias, the display name, the away / available setting, and then at least one or two more. I think Adium supports some, but not all of these. I think what happened, although I'm not sure, is that after people were changing their alias so no one knew who the frack was on their buddy list anymore, they added the display names so that people could have yet another thing to change... it's totally out of hand, but it's the way Windows Live works.You can show who you're listening to.

It won't be in 1.1, they're still waiting for Pidgin to merge MSNP13/14 support into the trunk. Someone did put together an unofficial test build that supports Personal Messages over on Cocoaforge, but it's quite buggy as far as I know.Hopefully the next major release that it, once it does, then Adium will be perfect.
EDIT: So I use aMSN for now, but it is fickle and buggy.
