What happened to GAIM?
Have you ever found something in the second-to-last place you looked?
If it seems like I am ignoring you, perhaps I am.

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 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 >
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)
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
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.

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