    If you use Trillian, I would suggest Gaim,


    it's open source and has more features.

    I use both MSN and AIM, but I am on MSN much more than I am on AIM.

    Most of my friends use AIM, so I use that. I don't need to use trillian since I don't really have to many friends that use Yahoo, ICQ, or IRC; so no need for trillian.

    I use MSN.

    If I am in Linux its either Gaim or AMSN.

    I used to use ICQ a lot, but people just started to use MSN.

    Ive tried Trillian, I just couldnt get used to it.
