    How would i go about getting the windows versions on yahoo messenger and msn on my macbook. I installed the windows version Yahoo messenger through crossover. It downloaded and installed fine but its really buggy and i cant start conversations and when i leave the mouse over contacts names instead of showing details it shows just black, and more buggy stuff. And i couldnt install windows version of msn at all.

    Prefer the obvious q's appear like

    Why not use mac versions of both the software ?
    They complety suck i hate them

    Boot camp ?
    I dont want to use windows but i want the windows versions of programs

    I might try download a portable .exe of Both of the messengers and try them through crossover since the two .exe installers of the messengers i got were web based installers.

    Well what you think ? :(

    I really don't know the answer to your question, but just a recommendation. Checkout Adium, it's a great Mac messenger app that works with all the messenger protocols.
