Has anyone used the Trillian instant messenger? How did you like it?

I tried it once at work, and could NOT get it to work on any IM system.

At work, MSN would never work (ports blocked) but yahoo and icq *would* work. Trillian was a no-go on all counts.

I've been using it on my Windows 2000 Professional, for the past 2 years... It rocks!
Check out the skin that I use:

Trillian enables me to connect with people that I know , who only have AOL!, Yahoo, and MSN IM Messenger.
When you type (bark), it shows a picture of a dog and your message receipent's speakers will say: "rough" "rough" "rough"
When you type in (santa) it shows an emoticon for santa (his face with his hat, of course,) and types: "ho ho ho".
It keeps a log of all of your individual conversations, and is really robust! I use GAIM, on Linux...
Only complaint, not on Linux!
Trillian rocks!

Hearing a lot good comments about Trillion lately, but in my I couldn't get it to work at my office network, even though Yahoo and MSN is connecting on their own.
I will try again this evening and update it here.
Ashok.
Update: Its works like a magic, err except for Yahoo. I am connecting from my network at work behind many such dmz and what not! Yahoo still can connect on its own, but Trillian seems to be lost there! Any tips?

I love Trillian. I am actually going to purchage their GOOD version that actually has voice and video capabilites like MSN and Yahoo have respectivly.
I only wish they had a Linux port.
Everybuddy has yet to include MSN support.
