    Re: EPIC BATTLE ROUND 1: Pidgin vs. Empathy

    People don't realise that Empathy can do all the protocols that Pidgin can do if telepathy-haze is installed.

    Anyway, I'm an (young) old-fashioned text-only person when it comes to IM, so Emapthy's fine. Also, Pidgin has been getting a bit complex.

    I choose Empathy only because Pidgin has a huge text bar before typing, then a normal one after you type. It's annoying.

    I hadn't heard of Empathy before, I've been having issues with pidgin randomly disconnecting without showing it is. I'm going to give Empathy a try. However I have been quite happy with pidgin it does what I need.

    I use pidgin on both my windows and linux... (wow windows.. almost forgot about it)

    The only thing I really hate is the stupid msn protocol, for third-party instant messengers file transfer has to go through the msn-server and it makes transfering files REAL slow >

    Re: EPIC BATTLE ROUND 1: Pidgin vs. Empathy

    pidgin is:

    more popular

    has more clients (telepathy-haze doesn't count, case its not installed by default, and your JUST using libpurple, so therefore why dont you just use pidgin?)

    cross platform (windows)


    empathy is:

    ugly

    has ugly icons

    only works in linux



    the whole POINT of empathy is to intregrate a im client into the gnome desktop, so you can do 'cool things' like have an address book and click on their name to IM them, or invite them to a game your playing, etc. but none of these features have been implemented yet. so unless empathy gets something really cool...its pidgin for me

    Re: EPIC BATTLE ROUND 1: Pidgin vs. Empathy

    I use pidgin. I've never used Empathy, so I won't vote. I'm not interested in Empathy though, because I try to avoid things with tons of GNOME deps.
    Code:
    while true; do echo -n "RiceMonster "; done

    Pidgin. No reason to be honest. I've sampled Empathy and I read it integrates with Gnome but I don't use Gnome...
