Fellows, my requirements are
- run in linux (duh)
- allow me multiple configurations. For instance, allow me to set up that when someone sends me an IM, a pop up window does not appear!, only in the taskbar. It's so anoying that everytime you get an IM the window pops up!! I'm currently using (trying) AOL IM, but I personally don't like it.
- keep logs of the conversations I have. THIS IS A MUST!!!
I was using trillian, but unfortunately there's no linux version.
