    ok ive been a Windows user for a very long time. had a macbook for the last 6 months and love it.

    my one nag is that theres not a very good IM client for the mac that is compatible with hotmail contacts.

    Im looking for one that uses the camera feature built into my macbook like windows live would. I know people may recommend ichat, and ive even set up a googlemail account that i use though mail and can use on ichat but it is NOT compatible with hotmail which the majority of my contacts use.

    thanks

    aMSN works with the Video capabilities.

    ADIUM works with Hotmail too. But no A/V.

    aMSN for suuuuure! It don't look pretty (picture MSN on windows) but it works awesomely! Especially for video. Saves the video so you can watch it later and/or show your friends that she's a real person!

    A/V should come to Adium pretty soon I hope, then you should use it. Otherwise, for now, like the others said, use aMSN.

    Oh wow, thanks a bunch for noticing....my bad. Edited post.

    And if you're asking about my skin, its Overture 1928 for Adium. It's pretty popular.

    Trillian is the Herpes of IM Clients. No IM Client should be CHARGED to be used.

    Pidgin for Windows and Miranda IM for Windows. If you still used Windows.
