Just wondering who all here uses Instant Messaging and if so what is your favorite IM service and IM client?

I use it occasionally - on AOL. But only with family. AOL is not my favorite, but that is what I happen to have.

Yes, I run Windows Live Messenger (WLM) all the time. My favorite is the one I can reach most of my family and friends on, and right now that's WLM. It does good VoIP and I like the sharing folders.

I've been using Trillian forever, accounts on Gtalk, Yahoo, MSN, AOL, ICQ, and probably one or two others I have forgotten about.

Pidgin - I have AIM, Yahoo, MSN and Google accounts.......oh yeah and the one Myspace account.

I used to use Trillian, the wife still does. That's only because i have never installed pidgin on her pc.

The only one ive ever used was AIM, and I still have my account but I forgot my username and password so I dont get on anymore (I should probably uninstall it), but most of the time I just talk to my friends on warcraft. (Yes, I play warcraft)
